Such great idea using a graphic black%white background for those coloured kitties, you are so clever, my friend!!! :D These cards are cool and stylish too! Love very much the fun sentiments on the first steps, this is another great idea! You are always so inspiring! The complimenting layers are just the perfect touch, very well done!!! My favourite is the last card, that kitty remember me my furry babies Dory and Red!!
Big hugs, have a lovely day!
