Scruffy Little Cat

I'm in the process of sorting a huge pile of craft magazines going back for years and I came across an issue of Creative Cardmaking (now defunct) from 2014 with some lovely Scruffy Little Cat toppers...

I matted the topper on black card and mounted it using foam pads on DCWV patterned papers. I've added a handmade flower embellishment which I made using circles of dress-lining silk burnt around the edges with a flame - a wonderful idea I got from Jen at Wear Crafts - a local craft company. The leaves are punched and the flower centre (from the wedding section at Home Bargains) coordinates with the strips of gems.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
