I wanted to play in the Color Hues challenge #14 which is to use only black & white, but I'm just not too fond of this now that I made it. LOL I used a piece of black & white dsp by DCWV and added a piece of black lace along with 2 stitched oval dies and a cat, done with a SU! punch. The tiny bow is from Lawn Fawn's Tiny Box set of dies. I went a little too wild with the black Nuvo drops, adding them to the dsp, image panel and tiny bow, and after I added them, I realized it would have been better if I'd just used them on the ovals. Oh well, live and learn - I'm just not a very good CAS card maker ;)
I left the sentiment off because I'm not sure what occasion I'll use this for. I have 2 friends who are cat lovers and they'll both probably enjoy this as it is.
I'll also enter this into the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge for March - just use a critter
Happy Monday everyone! Thanks for the visit!
Beautiful monochrome card love the silhouette black cat and P.paper the Nuvo drops look fine to me
You're too hard on yourself Carol, this is GORGEOUS. I love the background and the silhouette cat with a beautiful bow. Love it.
Very pretty card, well done.
Can't go wrong with B&W . lovely job Carol ...................Lis
Fabulous black and white design. I love the background.
I think its beautiful, black and white looks so elegant and choosing the cat die was a great choice for the black aspect. I love black cats so I'm totally drawn to this, I've got my own nightmare called Loki... Norse God of Chaos!
By the way, don't be so harsh on yourself... creativity has no rules :) x
I love black and white cards .. .. .. I feel they always look so classy.
Can't imagine why you don't like the finished result. It looks great to me!
Love Jules xx

I think it's perfect Carol. The background is a perfect compliment to your design. Thanks for joining the girls and I at Color Hues.
Not too many Nuvo drops at all, They look like part of the design. Love the cat and this is a great black and white card.
Great use of your black&white papers pad again, Carol! Beautiful design too, the cat's silhouette looks so impressive on the oval and the white bow is so cute! The dots catches the eyes, love the play with the tail! :)
