Commissioned cat birthday card.

Still haven't heard about schools for Theo officially, but have been told that a school has been instructed to take him although they are full and have the right to appeal!  Home school is not going too well as he is very uncooperative!!  as you can imagine he still thinks he is on holiday :o(   Hope things sort themselves out soon or my blood pressure will be through the roof!!

So here is today's card

This card has been commissioned for a daughter and cat lover :o)

Papers from dovecrafts lilacs pack, layered with blue as those were the colours given and I think they look great together although I wouldn't have picked them myself, will have to rethink in the future :o)  

Tri fold card, I have used Xcut heart border punch and a Nellie Snellen frame to cut out the first cat that has been inked and liquid pearled around the scallops

The cat images are from Barbara Jensen in the Stitchy bear store called 'two kitties' and come as a set.

I have highlighted them in pro markers to give them some shading.

The sentiment I created on my computer.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by

This is a "purrfectly" charming card. (Sorry, I couldn't resist that -- especially since my little fur-baby is asleep here on my desk.) Really, this tri-fold card is quite lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us in this week's challenge at Card Crafter's Circle.

These cat images are really lovely Nikky and a really super card.

But afraid you have combined far more challenges that Stampalot rules allow (listed top of our blog).

Hope things go well with your school application, we went through this a few years ago and ended up having to go to appeal. And I know just what you mean about home schooling, she thought it was a holiday as well, all nine months of it.
