Party Cat...again!

I know I used him recently...but I love this little cat (from the 'Bubbly' set by Penny Black)...he has such a great expression on his face! lol Anyway...I was going to use 'Birthday Dog' for this card...but then I found these papers I wanted to use (from the 'Max & Whiskers' pad by BasicGrey)...and one of them...just perfect for one of the challenges I'm entering this into with it's zig-zag pattern...was covered in cats!!! I coloured my image with watercolour pencils, and added Glossy Accents to his balloons, although it doesn't show up very well in the photo. I used a Nestie to cut the star, and colour tinted some white pieces of card candy with a chalk inkpad to match the brown tones in the papers.
