Card for my mother-in-law

When my husband saw the card that I made for my mom for mother's day, he insisted that he wanted something like it for his mom. So I went ahead and made one using cats instead of dogs. I used the recollection 'meow meow' stampset. I stamped three cats on some white cardstock using my stamp positioner (let me tell you, I don't know how I lasted so long without purchasing one of these!). I colored all the cats making sure to make the middle one stand out by coloring it orange. I stamped the kitty image onto another piece of cardstock and I colored it the same color of orange and used my Sakura quickie glue pen to put glue on the kitty's stripes and then I put some red glitter on them. Using the second stamped kitty, I cut out the main part of the kitty (this is the layer that I added the glitter to) and adhered it to the main kitty with some scotch foam tape. I applied some fruit punch stickles on his ears (on the main layer) and his nose (on the top layer). I printed out my sentiment from my computer onto some cardstock. I adhered my patterned paper onto my card base after I stitched the kitty section and the sentiment section on and added some ribbon. I rounded all my corners. I stamped a ball of yarn and adhered it next to the sentiment.

I'm entering this into the current challenge over at the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog.
