Cat's Meow! Lawnscaping Challenge No. 57

Hi!  I'm sharing a card that I made for Lawnscaping Challenge No.57.  It's been quite a while since I played along.  And since I just added a few more sets to my collection, why not jump back in?  And besides...bling?  You bet!

Here's the challenge.
The idea for my card popped into my head almost a week ago.  So, I sketched it out right away.  Cause you know I'd forget it if I didn't.  Seriously.

I had fun with all of the little details on this card.  Yup, it was all in those notes I mentioned.
1. Woodgrain impression plate, then the scoring board to create the "siding" of this kitty's home.
2. Two square dies to create the window frame, adding 1 cross piece to simulate a double hung window.
3. Some patterned paper for the wallpaper.
4. A couple of pieces of coordinating patterned paper for the curtains (yes, I used my paper crimper for those!)
5. I stamped and fussy cut the kitty, then sponged on a little extra gray around the edges.  I gave him some black enamel accents on his nose, and of course...the required "blingy" collar.  :o)
Also, I traced the pattern in the curtains with a clear stardust glitter pen.  Just to add a bit more sparkle.

Well, that turned into a rather long post.  If you stayed with me all the way...thank you!  And thanks for visiting :)
