What's New Pussycat?

Good Morning all, where did the weekend go?
I can't believe it's Monday already!
It's time for the new challenge over at Eureka Stamps!
The theme this time is
It just doesn't get any easier than that does it?
We're also having a Design Team call, check out the details here.
It's open to all levels of crafters & you don't need any previous DT experience!
So, on to my card!

I've used the super cute image Digi 409 - Checkerboard Cat 
to make my Black & White Card. 
I had the old Tom Jones song What's New Pussycat going around 
in my head the whole time I was making his card!
I shaded the image slightly with a grey promarker to give it a little depth.
I added a tiny little heart button from my stash, over the little heart on the image
The spotty paper is from Papermania.
The lace is from my sash & the faux buttons were done with an embosslit!
The image & sentiment were cut out with Spellbinders dies
I distresses the edges of the paper, image & sentiment panel with a pair of serrated scissors

I kept this card fairly flat for posting but I feel I managed to give 
the impression of depth with the matting & layering.
Thanks for stopping by today, I do hope we'll see you in the challenge,
remember you don't have to use a Eureka Stamp to enter, but there is
a little incentive if you do! 
Don't forget about the DT call too!
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Come & Get It - Clear It Out (use a stash item)
Robyn's Fetish - Square or Rectangular Cards
Sweet Stampin' - Use A Non- White Base
