Purr-fectly Wonderful Birthday - SNSDC43

The challenge this week at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is right up my alley.  It's all about cats and dogs.  Since we are owned by 3 cats, of course, I had to choose a cat digi.  :)

I made a gate-fold card this time.  I found a neat tutorial on making a lacey "skirt" behind the image panel over on Beate John's blog in this post.  She also has an easy-to-follow tutorial for making a gate-fold card in the same post. I don't have the same die she used for her skirt so I used my eyelet circle die instead. Here's a side view of the image panel so that you can see the dimension. 

I stacked two of the smaller eyelet circles, cut in two different colors, on top of each other and slightly off-set the scallops to layer behind the sentiment panel. 

Cardstock:  DCWV (Robin), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned Paper:  BG (Out of Print)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy (Purr-fect Friend digi set)
Embellishments/Tools:  Ribbon (Michael's), Pearls (Recollections), Spellbinders (Eyelet Circles, Circles-lg & sm), SU Crystal Effects, Signo White Opaque pen (used on cat's nose), Copics

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Paper Sundae's #109 - Circles
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you'll play along with us this week.
