The Cat's Meow

Hello, everyone.  I wanted to play along in the September FANtastic Linky Party at SK Digis by Sonia Kertznus - this will be my first time participating.  What got me excited about it this month is the freebie that Sonia is offering - its a cat - yay!  She's called Kitty Pickaboo, and she's a real cutie.  Here's the card I made.

I followed the sketch at Your Next Stamp (shown below) and used some digi paper from Trimgym's Digistamps, Paper, and Images.  I started with a white card base and added an embossed purple panel, onto which I layered two panels of Trimgym's beautiful striped paper.  I coloured Kitty Pickaboo with pencils and mounted on a green square.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a mauve scrap and used my small square punch to make it into a banner.  Lastly, I added some flowers, two punched butterflies, a die-cut vine, and some gems.  Here are the supplies used:
