Wish upon a star

I haven't used this adorable Penny Black stamp ('Cat on the Moon') in ages, so I thought it was about time he saw some ink. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then cut him out using one of my Nesties. The papers are from the '72 & Sunny' and 'Hippity Hoppity' pads by We R Memory Keepers - I distressed the edges using my scissors, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The die cut stars are from the 'Hippity Hoppity' pad, and the sentiments are from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black...the 'Happy Birthday' one fell off the acrylic block just as I went to stamp it...so it's ended up wonky...but at least it didn't smudge and ruin the card!
