Teacup Kitty Birthday

Hello, everyone, I'm back again today with a birthday card.  The image I used is from Just Some Lines, and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I decoupaged the kitty's face and paws to give it a 3D look.

The beautiful flower is from Prima, which I won in some candy.  The leaves are stamped/cut with Cleary Besotted Leafy Accents stamp and die, and the sentiment is a wood-mount from StampCraft.  I added a little pawprint heart charm and a die-cut kitty.  Two of the cardstock panels are embossed (Cuttlebug Baby's Breath and Swiss Dots), and the turquoise cardstock is stamped repeatedly with a swirly stamp from Paper Pleasures.  The ribbon is from Offray, and the gems are from Studio G.  I added Stickles to the centers of the flowers, but it's hard to see.  Here's a close-up so you can see how the kitty is popped up.
I followed this sketch from Papertake Weekly:
