City Crafter Challenge Blog - SWALK

I chose this week's City Crafter challenge ....SWALK.

For my DT card I embossed a Penny Black stamp in white on vellum. I stamped it again on cardstock, coloured it in and cut out the cat, which I paper-pieced onto the envelope. The greeting was made up of lots of separate Avery Elle stamps and the paper , which is ready-glittered was from a lovely pad my sister gave me for Christmas. 

Our Guest Designer this week is Jenny Martin , so I hope you'll come over to City Crafter and see what she and the rest of the DT have made...and enter your own project. 

I'd like to enter:
Penny Black Saturday  try something new (the sentiment on vellum is new for me) 
Retro Rubber Cross my heart (heart on envelope) Very old stamp ...five years? 
Use your Stuff  love is in the air 
Time Out  inspired by words 
Sweet Stampin  love is in the air

Your vellum envelope is just lovely, especially with the kitten peeking out. Very clever, the way you have done that. The paper you've chosen is a great backdrop for the kitten and his envelope. All round adorable! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber.
