Birthday Card with Aperture - 2cute Cat-Knit

A recent challenge over at Bah Humbug
Asked we create a project(s) with 'Apertures' You can see my entry here

I don't do many cards with apertures so feel very much out of my comfort zone - I decided to take up the challenge, even though I found it hard I am quite pleased that I had a go.
I was needing to make a birthday card for a very dear crafty friend who knits the most amazing garments.  I knew I had to use my 2cute Cat-knit digi image  After visiting some of the wonderful challenge entries on their blogs I was insprired to have a go again at making a card with an aperture. This is what I came up with. The recipient was over the moon with her card,which made me feel all warm inside. She hired her local community room where fellow crafters/knitters/spinners/felters etc.helped celebrate her birthday. She looked so beautiful in her pretty red outfit and red shoes .. sadly I was in such a tiz today with one thing and another, I forgot to take my camera! My gifts to my friend were a knitted mini liquorice tic tac toe board game and a pretty bone china cup and saucer where I placed a very pretty cupcake inside the cup,all wrapped up in cellophane.

The photocorner at the top looks crooked .. but its the angle of the photo .. honest.
