There are some lovely images on these sites so please do go and have a browse.

My Image for my card is from A Day For Daisies and I chose 'Walking in the Rain'.

As soon as I saw this image I decided on a Red Coat and of course I had to have the little Kitties coat to match! I coloured the image using Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs, die cut the image using Radiant Rectangles and inked through the die with Tumbled Glass.

I chose two papers from the Winter collection, cut to size then ripped around the edges before distressing them with my scissors. I matted them on top of each other angling the bottom one slightly and attached my image on top.

For my base card I used Kraft card, with a piece of Blue card I embossed with Knit One Pearl One embossing folder and placed this across the middle of the card, top and bottom I added a boarder using Teal card then placed a strip of Lace Scalloped Ribbon diagonally across the Blue card. On top of all this I then added my image.

As it was I thought it looked a bit bare so I added a die cut corner to the top left, just tucking it under the Radiant Rectangle corner and to balance it out I added  some leaves and a flower bottom right.

There you have my first DT member  card for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends  do go and have a look at all the other wonderful creations from the DT. I hope you come and join us in with the challenge, each week it will be Anything Goes.
