Blame It on the Cat Nap !

     For the newest weekly challenge starting today at QKR Stampede, I made a card I needed for a belated birthday and used the funniest image - "Black Leaning Cat - ES1407" which is from our sister shop, Eureka Stamps.

     The sentiment is my own but is also my excuse for missing the actual birthday and having to send a belated card.  :-D

     Since this card is for a guy, I kept it pretty CAS.  The image is fussy cut (by hand) and the sentiment was printed and cut by hand, then matted and hand cut again. 

     I found the polka dot ribbon with the rainbow dots in my stash and used a scrap of red, polka dot, satin, ribbon to hand tie the little bow.  I added three metal beads to the top and the bottom and called it finished. 

     Inside it says, "I must have napped right through your birthday!"
