Kitty and mice

Every summer I meet a customer who routinely purchases a dozen or so "cat cards" to give to her friend the cat lover.  I appreciate the sales, but it does keep me on my toes to locate a variety of images!  I recently found new ones at Dearie Dolls - this is a colored image - and they are freebies.  Hooray for the variety, and thank you, Dearie Dolls!  I added glitter to the flowers on the chair, and cut the kitty's head, to make a smaller panel.  The circle and strip are both DP, and the bg is Cuttlebug's You - I inked just a few of the words before embossing - a kind of spotlighting technique, I guess.   The ink does not seem to show well on the screen - "kind", "loving" and "stupendous" are the ones with a bit of dark pink ink.  The flowers are Petaloo, with gems added, and the ribbon is a sparkly pink.
