July 2018 Inspiration Challenge at Altenew

Hi there,

I've been enjoying my day with the window open and the rain falling softly outside.  I did take a break to meow at the wild cat in the back yard.  He/she was quite perplexed as to the source of the sounds, but didn't move from what appear to be favorite hunting grounds.  Yesterday, the same cat thought about hunting a young doe that came by for some corn. The cat thought better of it once the doe moved towards the cat.

On to the card,  this month Altenew is showing inspiration in blues and gray.

 I took one of the layering stamps from the majestic bloom set and used a very pale blue to stamp the background.  I added some glitter tape in a strong blue and my sentiment in gray.  I think I can get away with sending this one to my Dad even though it is a flower card technically.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

A lovely ethereal background, Cat ... the delicacy of the blooms is such a wonderful contrast with the bold sentiment! Fabulous wildlife in your garden! Hugs, Anita :)
