A Hidden secret!

Morning all, not so nice here today, hope it is better where you are!

This mornings card has a little suprise hidden, hope you like it.

The backing papers I have used have been in my paper stash for years, they were free with a magazine years ago, but I don't know which one.  I have layered them onto pink card, and used a fiskars boarder punch on the edges.

I have used an ebossing folder on the top pink layer that has been matted onto green card and a boarder punch has been used.

The cat image is a Lili of the valley stamp called 'Puss in Boots'.  It has been stamped onto a Nellie Snellen die cut that has been inked with green and pink and I have added pink and green gems around the edge. The lable says Twist me because........

..... here is the hidden suprise. 

This saying is from Doodle pantry digis, their victorian shoe package.

The birthday circle is from Crafty sentiments and the flowers are Xcut punches which I have punched out of the papers and used a flower centre punch and a gem in the centre.  The swirl is a Marianne creatable die.

I will be entering this card into the following challlenges

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments :o)
