Just Ginger

Enough with the superfluous Valentine's cards! Here's a birthday card, made at my daughter's request for her friend. She told me she wanted a card with a big A on the front and a long-haired ginger and black cat.

I was lucky enough to win some digital images by Sami Stamps and so I decided to choose this one for the card. (Not sure if it's a giant cup or a tiny cat.)

I paper-pieced the cup and die-cut an A and a wonky circle shape. But when I tried to colour the cat ginger and black, I ran into difficulties. I don't think I've ever seen a long-haired ginger and black cat and when I tried it on some practice images, it just looked bad. So I decided to just make the cat ginger.

So, when I gave it to my daughter I apologised for the cat colour and she replied 'I didn't say ginger AND black - I said ginger OR black!'.

Good it turned out to be ginger as its fur color goes well with the rest:)
