Cat in a box!

I have a pop up card to share with you. I had seen these all around blog land and pinterest and really wanted to have a go. I made this for a lady who loves all things girly and has a white cat which had to be included in the card. It was a bit fiddly getting the inner holders in place and then adding the flowers. I used my mini clothes pegs to hold things in place until the glue dried. Time consuming but good fun and I loved the finished result.

Image - cat from Tulip and Friends...pampered pets cd
Papers - Nitwits
Embellishments - fussy cut from Nitwits Dress collection, brads, glitter
Medium - shaded cat slightly more with promarker

I would like to enter this into

Well the weather here has been desperate. Extremely high winds, trees falling, fences flying up the road etc etc along with loads of rain and sleet! Believe it our not my neighbour climbed a ladder to have a go at fixing our roof! I was extremely worried for him as we had a red warning here for winds but he was fine lol and did a great, if somewhat temporary fix.
I am hoping these winds settle soon before any more damage occurs.
Keep safe out there!!

How wonderful Pinky! Love all the flowers with the white cat sat amongst them! I almost got blown over by the wind yesterday trying to get my Aunt out of the car! Seems a bit more quiet this morning. Susan x

This is a very pretty pop up box card. They always look very effective but they are so easy to make......inners are a bit fiddly I agree. That cat is so cute peeping through the flowers.....cats just love boxes don't they. Thank you for joining us at CD Sunday. Wynn DT

What a fantastic project - stunning to look at, and the attention to detail is marvellous, with the verse making sure that the back is an important feature of the card too.
