Totally Tabby

I made this one for my father-in-law's birthday, he has two cats, one of which is a tabby much like this one.
 The stamp is an ancient Crafts UK one, it's only been inked once or twice because I think the back leg looks a bit wonky, which is a shame because the rest of the stamp is lovely, I'll have to think of ways to use the cat in scenes where that part of the image is hidden.  It's been coloured with my usual Promarkers.
The papers are Papermania, Gorjuss, although they're designed to go with a girly range, I think they work rather well for men's cards.  I've used a cute EK Success punch to add a paw print border to a couple of the papers.
The Dad sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp and the birthday sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.  To embellish, I've added some knotted ribbon and some home made card candi, which I made with a tiny circle punch and an embossing tool, by making my own it matches the project perfectly.

  14. I love your card, though I do agree with you about the hind quarter looking not quite right. Perhaps the cat could be peeping around a box or a piece of furniture the next time you make it up.
