Cat-sitter Thank-you

My husband & I have a trip scheduled in a couple of weeks, our neighbor is kind enough to look after our two cats. I used this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch as inspiration for the above card. The other inspiration came from Sophie and Tucker, our two cats:

Hopefully you can see the resemblance! I stamped "Sophie" with black Stazon ink and colored her eyes with Pear Pizzazz and ears & nose with Blushing Bride markers. "Tucker" was stamped with Peach Parfait and again his ears were colored in with Blushing Bride. Both cats were outlined, and the sentiment stamped, with Marina Mist. The DSP is two pieces from Botanical Gazette - bird cages behind cats just seemed appropriate somehow. I'm not sure what color blue the main card is - it was a stray piece of card stock in the drawer.

Here's the Freshly Made Sketch:

You have until Monday (July 2) at noon PST to submit a card.
