Cat Birthday

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a tic-tac-toe challenge for you.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to download the photo, so you will have to go to The House blog to see it!  I used the bottom row: fun fold, texture, and cats
And here is my card:
 The cat, the sentiment panel and the flower were all in my bits and pieces stash.  I had planned to use them together at some point, and this card was the perfect opportunity.  I used a fun fold which I think is called the double slider card:
 When you pull the one tab, both tags slide out from either end.  I stamped matching (but larger) borders, add the sentiments and stamped another kitty.  The sentiment on the left says "Wishing you a lifetime of Beautiful Days and happy tomorrows."  And here is another picture of the front:
My texture comes from the mulberry paper, the twine, and pearl.  Plus the layers and the plain purple layer has a slight canvas texture to it.
I hope you will play along with us this week.  Tic Tac Toe challenges are so fun, basically you are making your own challenge!

Another lovely card, Heather! I have to admit I ready "baby" instead of "birthday" when I first read the sentiment on the front of the card. lol Guess it's getting a little late to be commenting on cards! Thanks for sharing with us again at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
