Birthday Card for a Special Lady

We have a very special friend who will be celebrating her birthday on January 30.  This wonderful lady provided the funding to build the softball field and stadium and the University of Illinois where my youngest daughter played on the first scholarship team (2000-2004).  Janna (my daughter) remains very close to her and will be with her to celebrate her special day.  She loves her cats so I thought this would be the perfect card.

I used Nifty Fifties for the cat and shaped background.  I chose the orange and blue color scheme because this darling lady truly bleeds the Illini Orange and Blue!  The sentiment is a combination cut from Create a Critter (purrfect and birthday) and Songbird (have - welded on the Gypsy - and a).  The blue paper was already embossed so I popped the cat for a just a little more dimension and then added some gems.

Tomorrow I'll post the last of my weekend projects; the Sweet Treats Party kit (kit created by Monique Griffith).

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn

Super cute! I love that cart-I'm trying to resist temptation but your card is making it difficult. LOL
