Birthday Card ~ A Kitty For Your Day

I had so much fun sponging my background using a stencil 
yesterday I broke out another one to play with.
Next I embossed the center band with dots and zig zags.
Then I hand cut a tag to stamp Newton on.
I colored up Newton and added a sentiment to the bag front.
To finish up I added some beautiful twine I was 
lucky enough to win at one of Diana's DL Art challenges.
Thanks Diana. You are the best.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Cat and sentiment from the Newton's Birthday Bash stamp set from Newtons Nook.
*Embossed using the Dots & Zig Zag folder from Sizzix.
*Sponged background using the Heidi Swapp 6x6 Triangles stencil from American Crafts. {at Simon Says}
