Carol Singer

The challenge at As You Like It is , do you prefer feathers or fur? and to say why you make the choice.
I am definitely a fur person.  There are so many adorable teddies, cats and dogs available for crafting you could probably make a card using them everyday forever and not use one of them twice!  I love so many stamps and digi stamps which enable me to colour them as I wish.  After saying that, this card uses a pre-printed decoupage image

I am also entering it into

 Creative Card Crew #61 the challenge is music

Sister Act #56 anything goes

613 Avenue Create #71 is an anything goes challenge with an option to create a card using the recipe table which is provided

The decoupage and the backing papers are from a Forever Friends 8x8 pad.  I haven't used 3D foam on the layers, just Letratac dry adhesive which gives a subtle dimension while keeping it in the size for 5mm when posting.  I am really, really disappointed that Letraset have now discontinued this adhesive so I'm stocking up with it if I see it at a reasonable price.  Some retailers have hiked the price up I imagine for supply and demand :(  Moan over, back to my card!  I layered the decoupage onto green card and cut it out leaving a slight border, quite pleased that the border was more or less uniform around the picture.  Peeloff vertical greetings complete the design
