What a wonderful and unique creation, I just love how everything comes together in your project. Even more so as my sister is an avid knitter. The image you've worked with is fantastic, what could be better that a cat all covered up in a soft knitted scarf? The ribbon you added is a perfect match to the motif, and so is the sentiment. I like the background, too - not only it's a perfect colour match, it could also be interpreted as a knitting pattern or a piece of fabric. The button-border is another great detail, and I absolutely love it. All in all, a perfect card to highlight handwork related to wool/fabric. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika
