When Black Cats Prowl

Halloween here is a pretty sad affair.
We're lucky if we get half a dozen groups of trick or treaters at the door!
I miss the days when we would have a big, kids party, with ghosts
and witches screaming through the house   :-)
So, I only need a couple of cards - one for each of my daughters.
And this year, I went with the same design for both of them.

We are all animal crazy - 
Annabel has a couple of cats and Maria has a shared  'house' cat ,
so I thought this stamp would be perfect for them.

At the last minute, I die cut a circle into the orange card, to make a 'moon'
which helped to balance the card and add a little more interest.

fab card - yes cut out balances the whole card. we get trick or treaters - but on the whole in the UK we do not send cards like they do in the U S - shame really - don't make any...

Fabulous card Caroline - the die cut 'moon' is the perfect finishing touch.
This would look great in our Orange and Black challenge at Divas by Design :o)

Adding the moon was an awesome idea! You obviously have a keen eye for design and felt that 'little something' was missing....and you found it! I adore this sweet, clean & simple design! And being a ca-razy cat person, I adore the wee felines on your card and in your blog photos!

Gorgeous kitties (we have two precious cats - both belong to our daughter but live at "grandma & grandpa's house!). Can't say that I mind though!

Thanks for choosing to share your card (& pics) with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
