Mojo Monday #508

My kitty is back for a sketch challenge with Mojo Monday! Mojo Monday was always one of my favorite sketch challenge blogs.  The sketches usually have lots of layers, which is exactly my style of cardmaking.  I was so sad when the decision was made to close the blog, but so excited when Julee Tilman decided to bring it back!  Here is a look at the original sketch-

I seriously wanted to put a heart image behind my cat...but sadly no heart dies were to be found!  No way was I going to hand cut I decided to let my kitty stand alone. He is popped up to add dimension to the card.

My card is actually intended for Valentine's Day, but you have to see the inside to know that.  You could easily use the card front for any occasion.  This card really shows the versatility of Close To My Heart papers.  My pattern paper and the trim on the inside of my card are both from the the Something Fierce line.  Yep, the one with the dinosaurs!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
C1769 Purrrrific Stamp Set
C1632 Say It All-Retired
X7240B Something Fierce Paper
