Birthday Cat Pout

Happy Monday! It's time for a new I {heart}sketches challenge for From The Heart Stamps :)

Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too. It's in the rules! ;)

Here is my card...

*Sorry for the poor quality photos that I've had lately, I just can't seem to get the lighting/camera settings right :(

This fantastic image is Birthday Cat Pout, I got this image through Mekaela's FUNdraiser, by supporting the Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association.
Here's a list of other products that I've used:
Colouring medium: Promarkers.
Chevron paper: Erin Bradley Designs (chevron doodles)
Gingham paper: Erin Bradley Designs (summertime fun)
Paw Print tissue paper from my stash.
Dies: Marianne Anja's Vintage Swirls, Marianne Stencil Leaves, Die-namics Flower & Leaf Trio, Clearly Besotted Stamps 'sister' word die.
Flat-back pearls.

The twist this time is to make an interactive card, so I made part of my design slide out to reveal the sentiment, which is one of FIVE that came with the image...
