Pink & Girlie Pussycat

This card was a commission from lady at work!
She wanted a 30th Birthday card for her Daughter in Law who likes pink & cats!
Not much to go on but here's what I came up with!

I made an A5 easel card, using elements from a  Craftystash download.
The design paper was part of the download & the pink paper was from my stash.
I cut out the pyramage, then layered it up using pinflair glue

I punched out lots of little leaves using my Woodware punch 
then added them along with some buttons & little pale pink roses.

I added a cat charm which I threaded onto the stem of the rose. 
This allows it to move.

I created a circle sentiment in my graphics programme .
I cut this out with an inverted scallop circle nestie.
It was then stuck onto a scalloped circle of the pink paper.
Next I cut the stop from some white card,
using a Marianne Design Creatables Die

I stuck the sentiment on to this, then I stuck it to the card using foam tape.
I have to say I was quite please with the result.
Sorry the pics aren't the best but the weather is atrocious at the moment.
Thanks for stopping by!
