Christmas cards all year round July challenge: anything goes

I am so glad that the Christmas cards all year round challenge blog has started up again and I am in the group that posts mid-month. So this is my design card using the Imagine That by Kris 'hanging kitty' image (supplied by them as sponsor of the challenge). This was pre-coloured. Please click on the challenge link here to see the lovely designs by the rest of the Christmas Belles and click here to see the designs by the Gingerbread Gals and join in the challenge - the theme is 'anything goes' as long as it is Christmas or festive related.
Prize: $10 gift certificate

I die cut the image using the outline die from the Todo henna frame set, distressing around the image with squeezed lemonade ink, using spiced marmalade distress ink on the edges. The background paper and the cutting across the bottom are from the Bo Bunny silver and gold collection papers. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, the sentiment tag from an old Anna Griffin set and the two burlap flowers from Poundland.
