You put a song in my heart!

Today's card was inspired by the 'music' theme of this fortnight's Less is More challenge. I dug out my Penny Black 'Jazzy Cats' stamp set, and picked this singing kitty. I stamped him on to some white card, then added a line to 'ground' him and a sentiment stamp from the same set, then coloured him using watercolour pencils before carefully cutting around the top. I created the background by smooshing Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose, Fired Brick & Festive Berries) on to some watercolour paper, then embossed it with hearts using an embossing folder by Sizzix. I sanded over the raised parts to reveal some of the white core. I placed it behind the cat, then matted it on to some black card.

An adorable and super cute, music-inspired card Helen. The heart embossed background is stunning although it doesn't leave much clean/unpatterned space which you know we love at Less is More. Thanks for sharing this beauty in our gallery and joining our birthday music challenge this week

Love this adorable cat ! Your distress embossed background is fabulous too even if it takes off a lot of our favorite blank space that we love. But it's always a pleasure to see your wonderful cards in our gallery. Thanks for sharing and for playing along at Less is More.
