Thank you for a cat lover

We recently visited a long time friend who has two cats.  I wanted to send a thank you note, so I used the cat image from C is for Cat (retired stamp set) to make this card.  The card measures 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches.  I  wanted to include some photos we had taken and a 4 x  6 photo fits perfectly in this card.
The background behind the window is Soft Sky card stock.  This is a color that will be returning to Stampin' Up! in the new catalog that will be available in June. 
 The sun was made by punching a 1 1/4" circle in a scrap paper for a mask.  I sponged the Daffodil Delight ink inside the punched opening.
The window frame is made from a window die cut that my sister gave me.  It is backed  by a piece of clear plastic to make it appear like glass.    Lovely as a Tree stamp set provided a perfect image behind the window.
Basic Gray was used for the basic card, along with Whisper White and Basic Black card stock.
Although it is not visible in the photo, Pearl Ex was used on the collar, and a blue rhinestone was added to make a sparkle hanging from the collar.  I love this cute cat, as it can be stamped in any color to resemble your own cat!  I'm sure our friend will love it!

This is so cute. I'm always looking for ideas to use with the window dies.
