What's New Pussycat

At first I was having difficulty deciding which song to call on for inspiration for my latest design team card for Crafty Boots Challenges.  Then I received my new Strawberry Kisses cd and stamp set from Crafter's Companion and it went the other way, the stamp inspired the song.

Looking at this little kitty popping out of the flower pot just made me just imagine her saying 'What's New' - so you guessed it the song is 'What's New Pussycat' by Tom Jones.

The image is colored with promarkers.  I then cut it out with my Grand Nestie scalloped oval die.  I distressed the paper with Mustard Seed and Broken China Distress Ink.  The swirled backing paper is from Hunkydory , the pastel yellow backing is sikl art card and the polka dot layer is from K&C.  I added the sentiment, a bit of vintage ribbon and green felted brads to finish it off.

Anyway, I hope you like the card.  I have really enjoyed becoming a member of the Crafty Boots Design Team because it has really encouraged me to develop my cardmaking.  It has also been wonderful because I look at all the entries in each challenge and get to see so many inspiring projects.

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
