Kitties are a girl's best friend :P

I've had fun playing around with this today. There were a few challenges I wanted to combine, and between them they led to this card. Here are the challenges:
Simply Betty - Teenage Best Friend
The Pixie Cottage - sketch 28 and/or two different stamps. I did both this week - Lola (the girl) comes with her own pet rat but I wanted a kitty for this one, so I used Lili the cat as my second stamp
Crazy Challenges - olive fuschia teal. Now when I first read these colours, I have to admit that I pulled a face, it sounded like a dreadful mix. And then I saw how beautifully the DT had combined those colours to make their own creations, so thanks very much for your inspirational work ladies :D
Die Cut Dreams - gingham
Creative Inspirations Wednesday - animals
Charisma Cardz - something with a tail
Crafty Sentiments - two embellishments or two types of embellishment. One flower and some brads are mine, lol, this was tough for me. And although the flower is layered, each layer is the same shape just coloured and sized differently, and the centre of the flower is the same as the brads, lol, I know it doesn't make any difference but it pleased me :P
