My First Teapotter Tuesday

I've been seeing the Teapotter's on Splitcoast Stampers for over a year now, but this is the first time I have been able to participate in one of their Tuesdays. Luckily, this is a special Tuesday and this card will go to someone who needs cheering up and loves cats.
When I read that she loved cat's, I immediately thought of my uninked "Cattitude" stamp set by There She Goes. And so I went there for some inspiration and found this card. Yes, I am a shameless KopyKat aren't I? lol.
I didn't even realize that the teal was wrong until I was done, but it's still good. I also did not have a green card stock to match the pixilicious dsp, so I used a prisma pencil and went all around the edges and then used the gamsol to spread it around. I love that. I also had some seam binding that I dyed with olive green and it came out light, so this was a good match as well. I colored the cat with prisma colored pencils and used gamsol. I paper pierced around all those edges but I don't know if it really shows up well in the picture. The purple cardstock is some PTI I had in my stash, it matches the pixilicious really well. I used my SU punches for the sentiment and added brads and a heart wire.
Thanks for looking, I hope you are having a fabulous week.
