I was going to try to take a photo that better showed the sparkle now that the sun has come out - but I can't find the card! I took it off the kitchen table and then I started some housework and now I can't find it...
When I looked at the teapot and read the story I had about three different ideas, but once I remembered that I had some iris paper that was a download from Canon, that decided me to bring my dainty PCS cat who would look quite at home on the oriental paper.
A2 base, rusty brown card.
Paper is a Chiyogami download from Canon Creative Park which I printed off a couple of years ago and never used. I edged it with a purple Sakura Stardust pen.
Pink Cat Studio image stamped on a piece of watercolour paper cut with Labels 10, and coloured with distress inks. I sponged round the edge of the frame and added tiny bling. It's popped up on foam on the next size up of Labels 10, sponged with Dusty Concord. Before I put it down somewhere I was just thinking I should have embossed that purple layer, but I'd never get it off the card again. I added some narrow satin ribbon and a Spellbinders tag with a birthday sentiment on it.

What a sophisticated charmer - she is just right for that lovely paper. I can't count the times I get all my pieces ready to assemble and the just colored image has vanished. There is a black hole there someplace....
