It's Your Purrday!

It's Tuesday which is my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps! If you've been here before, you know that I'm a crazy cat lady and show feline loveby collecting all the cat themed crafting supplies in the world. To that end, I recently purchased Time for Tea's Purrfect Day and Kitty Capers Clear Stamp Sets, which I've used in this Purrday card. 

Here's the card!
