Cosmic cats postcard

Made another postcard yesterday evening and it's definately my favourite yet.

I cut some colourful cats from a piece of Laurel Birch fabric and attached them to a black background with silver stars. I used random stitches in varigated thread all round the edge of the cats to look a bit like crazy fur. Added a few beads to the spotty cat and machine quilted around the shapes.

I also added a layer of card before I put on a calico backing to try and make the card a bit stiffer and slightly more stable for mailing.
