Vintage Cats - You are Loved

 Hello, everybody!  Today I'm sharing a love-themed Valentine card featuring vintage kitties.

Products used:
Clipart:  Cats (Taylormadecards4you Cat Valentine - this was a freebie at one point - thank you, Monica!), postage stamp (Gecko Galz Little Valentine Icons Collage Sheet
Digital Stamp:  Background (STAMPlorations Love A2 Card Fronts - freebie until Feb. 28 - thank you, Shery!)
Patterned paper:  Artymaze, Create with TLC
Other:  Small heart punch, red glitter cardstock scrap

I printed the You Are Loved digital stamp on two different patterned papers, tore the edges to paper-piece back together, and then adhered to a white card base.  I fussy-cut the vintage cat couple and the "Message of Love" postage stamp, and then popped up the kitties on foam tape and adhered the faux postage stamp.  I embellished with three tiny punched hearts.
