Empty Dish

     Hmmmm, chickens on Friday and cats on both Saturday and Sunday!  But then, I love cats -- and I love Sami Stamps, and I love card making so this one was a natural.  It also reminds me of Honey Cat (see sidebar) who has gotten rounder and rounder and rounder and still gives me 'that look' !

     I colored Fat Cat, excuse me, Round Cat with my ProMarkers and cut the image with a simple circle die from QuicKutz.  I used another QuicKutz die to cut the polka dot dp and a Memory Box die to cut the bright pink dp, then inlaid them behind the cat.  The sentiment and both matting pieces behind it were cut with a smaller die from that same Memory Box set.

     I added everything to a black card front, found three tiny, sparkly flowers and a bright pink butterfly (also very tiny) and used those for embellishment, leaving the overall design pretty CAS.  This was one of those quick and easy, git 'er done cards that I am going to send to a kid I know who is also a cat lover and who will appreciate it with childish delight.  :-D

DEE-lightfully round, Connie! LOL cute kitty, and cute way of using layers of circles! You've really been using so many pretty papers with nesting die cuts lately, and I am enjoying the use of your repetitive layering! I've never thought of doing that, and it looks fabulous in a design! The drama of the black against your pretty pink is always a great touch! Fabulous card, Miss Connie! hugs, de
