Hello everyone,

My inspiration today is  a sketch challenge from the Fab Friday Challenge Blog and … wait for it…. International cat day. We have a rescue cat, Toulouse and she’s been with us 2 years now. 

Fab Friday 169 Sketch Challenge

I picked Smoky Slate as my base card and created a layer on top with the Button Button embossing folder. I chose this folder because it reminded me of Toulouse as sometimes she can be a bit nuts and loves to get in my box of ribbons and craft stuff. 

The cat was punched out of Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper.

Create a handmade card with a cat, easy to punch out

I die cut the circle and stamped the sentiment. Then I layered the gingham cat on top of the ribbon and felt border from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. The cute felt flower around kitty’s neck is also from this kit which comes with several embellishments in Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry.
