A Guy Birthday Card...sort of!

It's been too long since I posted a card! My father-in-law's birthday was this past week. I'm not so good at making cards for guys! They always look sooo plain. So I justified putting flowers on his card since he's a gardener! I bought this stamp this past week. I have been planning to order it online for ages but walked into a local scrapbooking store and found it! I have an orange tabby cat and this cat stamp reminds me so much of him. I haven't found too many other cat stamps that I really love. This one is definitely my favourite - especially since the cat is surrounded by yarn. My cat almost died after eating some thread when he was 5 months old! So the stamp is quite appropriate for me :)

The image has been coloured with distress inks - I have collected a ridiculous number of these! The prima flowers I also just bought this week - I love the darker colours. They go perfectly with the tones of the distress inks. And the papers are from K&Co. I wish I had finished this card earlier as there was a card challenge for cats and dogs last week! Thanks for stopping by! I love reading all of your comments!
