Simply CAT!!!!!

Hello everyone: I have a quick CAS (I think) card to share with you, that I will link to a few challenges at the end of this post, in the mean time, here is my card.

This fabulous cat silhouette is from Katzelkraft and the set is called Les Furieux, for all of us who love cats, this images speak louder than words.
I stamped the image onto a Ninah Solar White card base with Versafine Onix Black ink several times to get a really dark image and then, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, I did the same with the word CAT, I honestly think this is as CAS as I can make it, I resisted the temptation to add a bit of something but I really didn't think it needed anything.

Here is the picture of the inside of my card.

As a previous cat owner of 5 kitties when our daughters were little, I know how frustrating and, at the same time, enchanting cats can be, our furniture got all scratched and full of hair but sharing our home with them was never dull.  They can be playful but only on their terms, they will come and lay on your lap but only if they feel like it or need a good scratch behind the ears. This card could have been given to my dear hubby back then, who was totally outnumbered by 6 females, our two daughters, myself and the 3 female kitties, to 3 males, himself and the two tomcats, LOL!!
The sentiment was done with a very old alphabet set, the kitty paw with punches (done to cover a darn smudge, grrrr!!), the little ball of yarn is from an old Flourishes set called "Stitched for You"

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:

My Time To Craft Challenge #327, EMBOSSING, HEAT OR DRY
The Pencil Case Week #26 "Anything Goes"
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
