I had a couple of hours last night when I couldn't sleep. So I made a card. Just for fun! One I didn't have to think too hard on. I'll find a use for it soon I have no doubt. It will fit a number of occasions coming up in the next few months. I made it fir a few challenges whilst I was making it though :-)
 No patterned papers just different textured card. I have used 2 different ribbons - a fluffy purple/black and 3mm satin orange ribbon on the tag. The writing/check list done with white gel pen.
The image is from Dilly Beans and they have a party themed challenge on this week - hence the check list. I coloured the image with promarkers and cut out with a nestie.

The black cat in the corner is a rubber stamp from Stamp it Crazy.
The sketch I used is from Eat, Sleep, Stamp sketch #165 and the colours were to fit the challenge over at Forever Night challenges.

That's about it.
