Purrrfect Cat with a stamp and stencil background

I have a quick share today of a cute cat card!

The background was first stamped with a background stamp.  Then I placed a floral stencil over top and applied a heavy layer of Distress ink.  This technique was shared with me by my stamping friend, LeighAnn.  She is going to start blogging soon and I can link to her then.

Supplies: Inkadinkado Cats stamp set, Hero Arts Tweed background Stamp, Plaid Ditsy Floral stencil, Hero Arts Soft Pool shadow ink, Peacock Feathers Distress ink, Versafine black ink, other supplies from my stash.

I would love to play in the following challenge and hope you will check it out too!
