July inspiration

Hya friends.
Pull up a chair, relax and let's see what I've been up to.

Today is Inspiration Day for some of All Dressed Up's team A
(More tomorrow)

I made a card I really don't like, but have decided to share it with you as my fellow DT friends, don't appear to agree with me!

Here is said card....

 I saw this frame in the Silhouette store and loved it.
I faffed (a technical term) about with it and made it into a card.

I coloured my cute image 'Summer Swing' and the 'foliage' on the frame with Copics.
The background to my swinging kitty is an image from PC Hug Club.
Sadly defunkt now! II still have the browser and all my fabulous files though).
 I scanned my coloured image then I married it to the background using the Silhouette.
 So there you have it.

As I said, I don't like it now it's done so decided to make another one instead.

 TOTALLY different! LOL

OK, tell me. Which one do YOU prefer?
I'd be very interested in your answers.

Well that's it from me today.
Thanks for visiting! I can't wait to see which you choose.

I love 'em both !!! both fantastic cards for different reasons. Love the first one because the frame and background look fantastic and the second one I love because of the colours and how well it shows the image off xxx

I think your "teamies" are right not to agree with you Viv, is a fabulous card. You know it wouldn't be my choice to make such a card too, but that doesn't make it a bad one :o)
Love, Jackie xx

Your cards are beautiful. Love the colour scheme. My favourite one is the one you don't like. I LOVE what you did with it.

That kitty image is beyond adorable. Love how you framed it on the first card and darling idea to use the gems for the top of the swing on the second.

These cards are different as well as being adorable.

Love these Viv! I know you weren't totally thrilled with them but I think they are great. I like the opening gate on the first one with it's pretty background and think those swing toppers (or whatever they are called) is very clever. Love the colours on both these cats, especially the pink one.

Well of course, I love BOTH of these fabbie creations - you must have mud in your eye not to like the first one.. the frame and scene are pretty wonderful! And then you go and do a wonderful 2nd one... showing off now methinks!! hehe

Big hugs

Oh Viv, what are we going to do with you?! They ARE both gorgeous and I think the way you used the frame on the first one is so clever :-)

That said, I think the 2nd one is my fave because there is something about the zingy orange and blue that attracts me, or maybe it's the bling that catches my magpie eye?!

Big hugs, Kat xx
