You're Purrrfect

02/26/2017: Splitcoast Stampers Favorite of the Week.

02/22/2017 Update: Top Three Winner at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Eager to use a stamp set I've had for a while, I saw a sketch that I thought was just right. I love animals, especially cats and dogs, so it's no surprise that I have two cats. I had this cute paper, too. By the way, I flipped the sketch left to right.
The single cat was stamped onto the patterned paper, backed with pink cardstock, decorated with a bow and adhered with foam tape onto the black card base. The panel with multiple cats was cut from the reverse side of the patterned paper, backed with pink cardstock and adhered with foam tape onto the black card base. The paw print was stamped on white cardstock and a heart image was punched out, then backed with pink cardstock and also adhered with foam tape.
The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock using two ink colors and a shadow technique. This was fussy cut and adhered to a scrap of black cardstock, then fussy cut again for the black outline. The banner was adhered. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of  white cardstock and decorated with a stamp of the paw print.

My card is being submitted to:
