and just had to CASE it. I don't have the same stamps she used, but I pulled out the retired Cool Cat set and started laying it out. I rooted around for some paper and after going through a number of mixed paper boxes I found this new SU paper More Amour filed in the wrong place, but I loved the subtle colors on it. I chose not to do any distressing on my card and used different hearts and a baker's twine bow instead of a button on the front. I did use the same layout and theme. When I was trying to figure out where to put the heart with the cat on the main image, it kind of looked like a fancy vest to me, so I added rhinestone buttons and turned his collar into a bow tie. It makes me think he should be crooning in a barber shop quartet!
EDIT: I thought the hat in my original post was just a little small, but I didn't have another option at the time. Today I was at AC Moore and found an Irish top hat stamp in their $1 bin that I was able to size down to work with the cat. It is more balanced now.
