Pretty Kitty, Beautiful Bouquet, Birthday Card

Today I thought I would get out the "Pretty Kitty" set.  It's one I have not played with much. Hmm, I seem to have a few of those, don't I? I got this set because I'm such a great lover of cats. One can not have enough cats and according to our city ordinance, we can only have 3 pets, so there is a limit!!! I only have 2.

Anyway, back to my card.  The base is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party. I used some scraps of Decorative Series Paper (DSP) from the "Whole Lot of Lovely".  It was the only DSP that I could find that would match and blend well.  I cut them 3-1/4" x 1-1/8". I cut the Basic Black layer 3-3/8" x 1-1/4".  The kitty was stamped on a 2" x 3" piece of Whisper White card stock and layered on a 2-1/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Basic Black.  The words are from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set.  They are stamped in black and then die cut with the oval die. The layer behind it was die cut using the scalloped oval.  That wasn't the plan I had for the card but it was what I HAD to do.  As I was stamping the words, I dropped the stamp and it not only made a big mark on the card front but also on the corner of the stamped (and already colored) kitty image.  So, I had to get out the ovals and do some creative layering.  The kitty image should have been moved up a bit more and over to the left a little but this is how it had to be!! I doubt you would have noticed had I not said anything!!!  I just want to show you how to save your card because sometimes you can!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
