A Purr-fect Birthday!

It's my turn to post a creation today at the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog so  I decided to share a card using Purr-fect Gift - an adorable kitty image illustrated by Crissy Armstrong.  I've also used a sentiment from the Oval Snippets set and stamped it on the box.  That empty space is the box is just the purr-fect size for the Oval Snippets sentiments as well as most of the sentiments from the Snippets Sets.  I went with a distressed look for this card and kept the embellishments to a minimum because I wanted to show off the fantastic image.  I also used the sketch at Sweet Stampin' Challenge #14 and used some spring colors to enter into the Stampavie and More Challenge #84 Spring.

Oh, and just another little reminder about your Winter Clearance Sale! Winter-themed images and one sentiments set are currently 20% off regular price!  No coupon code necessary, prices are as marked.  Also, Whimsy Stamps currently now stocks an assortment of embellishments like cherry blossoms, Prima mulberry paper roses, bling, and charms.
