Christmas Cat

The current Merry Monday challenge is to 'Use a Cat or Dog'   I didn't think I would have anything suitable until I found this cute pre-coloured Lili of the Valley topper and some matching paper in my snippets drawer, so I'm off to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Christmas Kids' pre-coloured topper
Stamp: Woodware 'Snow is Falling'
Punch: Woodware corner rounder
Ink: Versafine Crimson Red
Other: Vintage Berries Gold card candi, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Red mirri card, red/green holly paper 

I layered the paper onto red mirri card and attached it to the card front.   I trimmed red mirri card slightly larger than the topper and rounded the corners.   The topper was layered onto the mirri and attached to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment onto white card, this was trimmed, layered onto red mirri card and attached to the card front.  Card candi was attached to the bottom corner and I used a Wink of Stella on the holly leaves on both the topper and backing paper.
