A Purrrfect Thank You

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, thank you cards are a favorite challenge theme this month. I am meeting the challenge with this card by posting at Pause, Dream, Enjoy -- Simon Says Stamp Challenge -- Papercraft Star Challenge 121

A Sizzix die cut embellishment attaches the Delafield cat image (one of my very first stamps!!) and still a favorite.  The image was stamped and  colored on the reverse side of vellum and mounted on cardstock, before matting with another layer and then silk leaves and a ribbon from stash for the finish.  The Hero Arts "Thank You" was punched out with an Emagination tag punch.  And speaking of Thank yous -- I wish to thank you for stopping by - please let me know what you think.
