This card was almost a goner.  I liked the way the patterned paper (by an unknown company)looked with the Groovy Guava card stock, but then I had trouble coming up with a focal point that looked right.  The first one I made looked hideous so I took it off and left the card blank for a couple days.  When I came back to it, I had fresh inspiration and am pleased with the result.  Sometimes it’s best to walk away. 🙂

I inked the entire cat stamp in Close to Cocoa ink, then used a blender pen to remove the brown from the eyes, inking them with green marker (though it’s hard to see in the pic).  The pearls came from Hobby Lobby, as did the heart rhinestone.  The crown was glittered with Stickles in Fruit Punch.
