Purrfect - for Me

Today's card is a little hard to see, but is a card I made for my honey.  I don't particularly like the layout I used, because there's a bit of a fight for focal - should probably have put the flower closer to the cat.  Anyway, I enjoyed playing with the techniques. 

The cat and the saying above her were embossed with clear embossing powder.  "You're Purrfect" is stamped with embossing ink all over the piece to the left of the cat. The result is similar to that of the cat but a bit lighter since it wasn't also embossed.  I used the same mini stamp set (one from Inkadinkadoo) to stamp on the ribbon - this time using a maroon ink.  It's not easy to see in the picture, but I used red Jewel Dazzles, adding one to the brad at the center of the flower, and cutting a couple more into almond shapes for the cat's eyes. The eyes look GREAT in person!
