Meow -- Adore Me, Adore Me !!

     For those of you who don't share your lives with demanding felines, let me assure you that this card was inspired by a little white cat who lives in my house.  Excuse me, who allows me to share quarters so that I can feed, love, and properly adore her on demand.   However, this will undoubtedly be used as a birthday card for one of my grandkids, who also think they should be properly adored.  :-D

I used the sketch from The Outlawz.

     The image is from Inky Impressions, where I won the challenge last week (Woohoo!!) and where their theme this week is "Checkmate."  I interpreted that to mean 'use checks somewhere' since most of the DT cards had checks or plaids on them.   The image is colored with ProMarkers, and the bow is paper pieced.  Then I die cut it with a die from Spellbinders, leaving her tail "out-of-the-box," and embossed the edges of the frame.   I used chalks to 'sponge' around the frame, enhancing the embossing.

     The checkered dp is from Doodle Pantry but I hate to admit I don't remember which set.  The ribbon bows are made to look like flowers, with gems added to the centers, and the sentiment is my own, computer generated, fussy cut and inked on the edges.

Your card is adorable and we have a cat just like that too. She insists that we carry her into the bedroom at night. If we forget she will yowl until we do. Far be it from her to actually use the cat door.
