Just Purrfect!

This card makes me sooooo happy,I'm more than a little pleased with it. The image by Meljens I chose from my win there a few weeks ago. Thought I'd try my hand at "tabby" it's not quite right,it's more like ginger but I'd be happy to have a ginger tabby cat to cuddle! I also fancied giving a spotty background a go,I've tried it in the past,but googled "Spotty Copic Background" and found a You Tube demo where the lady starts using 0000 numbers,now I only have Ciao so thought I'd try the same technique but using my blender to pick up the various colours and then dot it onto my paper.
Obviously the dots aren't so perfect done this way but I rather like it anyway! Not sure of the name but the scrummie,colourful paper is by Bo Bunny. I cut a few of the flowers out to add interest and coated them with 3d glaze.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CC42,What's new,New Digi,New technique,31.1.11
Secret Crafter 118,It's a couple thing,29.1.11
