Hi, everyone.  I wasn't feeling that great today so I took a little time to have some fun with my crafts.  Several of the items on my card were left over from some other projects so I put them together in a fun way.  No digital stamping today, all traditional stamping.

The cat stamp is from Magenta, one of their out-of-print Cat of the Month stamps named "Camille" from April 2009.  She was coloured with pencils and fussy-cut; she had been left over from a previous project so I decided it was time to put her on a card.  The other stamp used was the sentiment stamp from Penny Black Nine Lives clear stamps set.  The patterned paper is from Victoria and Albert Museum (won this in some candy).  The grass die-cut is from LaLa Land Crafts.  Flower punch is EK Success, and the butterflies and gems are from Dollarama.  The die cuts were all leftovers from other projects as well.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
