Happy Cats

This card is for my daughter and her husband.  They have four cats that all have unique personalities and are all wonderful furbabies.  I made this card for them "just because".  Their love for each other & their cats is obvious to anyone who is around them.  

I cased this card from Su Mohr. The only noticeable difference is that I turned the cats so that their tails would link. I didn't have the stamp set to print the sentiment so I used my computer and the RGB code for Rich Razzleberry to print it on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out.

All of the papers I used are retired except the Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White card stocks. The current colors just didn't seem to work with the gingham cats and I really wanted to use the gingham papers from the retired Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.  Hopefully you have a bit of a paper stash too.   If you don't have the exact papers, this card is easy to recreate with other papers.

To make the little balls of yarn, I put a Stampin' Dimensional on the cardstock and wrapped the metallic bakers twine around on top of it. Using two pieces of the metallic bakers twine, I tied a bow around the tails.
