Another commissioned card

Good morning friends! I have another one of those dreaded commission cards lol! I shouldn't complain but I was requested to make an elderly ladies birthday card with a cat image on..... errr I had to search out the internet for a vintage cat image and found this on a site called reuseable art.
I chose to use kaisercraft papers for a vintage look with lace and flowers from wild orchids. I also had some dough lilles from stash and some other flowers from Kort & Godt. My pearls and ribbon are from stash and the sentiment is computer printed.
My little image was printed straight from the net and inked with vintage photo. I figured why not give it a vintage look, I just can't help myself!

I haven't really been keeping up with the challenges this wk as my blogging has been sporadic due to spending time with my mum. We had a fab time yesterday at the opening of our new John Lewis home shop ooo it was nice then on for lunch at frankie and bennys and wow wasn't it a scorcher of a day!
Anyway I think I can pop this one into Party time tues anything goes, Simon says stamp anything goes, Pennys paper crafty anything goes and crafts and me flowers challenge.
Thanks so much for coming by today and big hugs to all
