The Cat's Meow

This Birthday Card is for a friend that loves cats and has spent time in Asia. The card is mostly layers of texture with the background of the card done in gold tissue paper that has been crumpled up, then smooth and rubbed with distress ink to bring out the wrinkles.

The Asian patterned paper was torn, stamped and distressed. I found this wonderful laser cut frame MANY years ago at my very first Scrapbook Convention.
A cat postage stamp finishes off the card. Purr-fect for a Birthday.
You have heard about the big 5th Anniversary celebration at Mystic Paper this Saturday the 12th haven't you? The awesome ladies of Mystic will be having a party with among other things, a Vendors Faire and several great classes being taught by in-house and a few guest teachers. I have been in love with Mystic since they had a corner in an antique store across the street from their present location. Mystic Paper has never been a "cutesy" store. It has always been a unique shop with treasures to inspire any mixed media or paper artist. Congratulations to Kim, Jennifer and Ellen!
