The Cat's Meow !

It has taken me a couple of days to find the time, but I've finally finished this card. I cut a window from my card front to resemble the 4 inspiration squares from Lawn Fawnatics challenge #5. I also used a couple of the inspiration squares and the colors for the card. I stamped the tree and cat and colored them with Copic Markers. I die cut the tree and fussy cut the cat. I die cut 8 flowers  and I cut a piece of light pink twine and colored them with the same Copic Markers to match. After coloring the little flowers I used a stylus to push them into a thick mouse pad to give them dimension.  I drew the floor using my checkerboard flooring technique at Splitcoaststampers. I just staggered the horizontal lines to resemble wood floors. I stamped the floor using the Lawn Fawn Woodgrain backdrop stamp. I scored in the baseboard lines then stamped my sentiment using my Misti. The cat is popped up with foam tape  and the card front is popped up over the card base to give dimension to the window and make room for the little flowers. I added Wink of Stella to the flower centers and the cat's nose.
