feline sick?

this latest card i made is for the lawnscaping challenge - texture! 

but i have to be honest, as i was creating this card, the texture i had envisioned, became less and less...regardless, i decided to share it! because it's pretty funny! :)

i used three lawn fawn stamp sets: harold's abc's, critters in the burbs and on the mend.

i chose that stacked book background for the card...good or bad, i chose it! lol! i went back and forth about 50 times, but then stuck with it. i think it helps add a touch of masculinity...i have no basis for that statement, but overall, i think even a guy could appreciate that card. especially if they like cats! 
then i added some woodgrain washi to the bottom of the card, to create the 'floor' for the little kitties. :)

each cat and accessory were paper pieced and made to look like they were getting into trouble! because lets face it...cats are trouble! lol!

the sentiment is heat embossed, and i added some glossy accents to their noses. also, that's a real tissue i cut up, that's in the box. tee hee. :)

so that's that! hopefully it will make someone who's feeling gross at the time, smile. :)
