For a special woman

   We are starting a new challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers and More, the theme of which is 'for a special woman'. I chose to make a birthday card for my sister, since I don't have anyone for whom to make a Mother's Day card and used items from Crafter's Companion Scruffy Little Cat.
   I matted and layered papers onto white card and then matted and layered strips of the same papers to form a horizontal band on the card.
   Next I matted a large topper from the same collection onto brown core'dination cardstock and fixed it to the card. Two smaller accents were added to the bottom of the card. I attached pearls to form a string falling over the topper.
   The stamped sentiment is from the Chanel Scruffy Little Cats set of stamps and was again matted onto core'dinations cardstock.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Whoopsi Daisy - add a sentiment
   The Crazy Challenge - happy birthday
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes
   In the Pink - for a special lady
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
