Another Day in Paradise!!

This card is a case from one that Jacki Topa made here.  I loved her card and I'm fairly happy with what I managed to make.
My card is smaller than Jackie's because I just used our cardstock and metric measurements.
Unfortunately my cat has a big backside, I think he's been sitting at that window a long time. pmsl  Now that I'm looking at him I wish I could have made him with the proper punches, oh well, not to worry.
The greeting is one I've had in my stash for some time and this was the perfect card to use it on.
Don't anyone go running away with the idea that making this card was easy....it was not!!   I spent some time getting those white rectangles reasonably even then when I stamped the image, it wasn't clear enough.  I had to start again!!!!   gggrrrrrrr
I have had an idea of how to perhaps make it easier for myself with those windows but I'll try that some other time.
My sponging leaves a lot to be desired but I was not going to do those blessed rectangles again. lol
All done eventually and I love the card.  Wouldn't mind doing him again one day if we got the Blossom Builder punch out here.
My girlfriend pounced on this card for her husband's birthday.  So I'll wait and see what our new catty brings before I attempt another one.
Thanks so much everyone for visiting my blog and leaving comments.  Love them all.
