Cricut 360 Challenge #10

Hello everyone,
Today I'm sharing with you a new card that I made for the Cricut 360 Challenge #10...Grandparents Day. I have always know about the day, but never quite sure which day? Well, now I know this is September 11, 2011. My children have only one grandparent alive...its very sad, but I'm so glad to have my beloved mother! My mother LOVES CATS...i mean REALLY LOVES CATS! So I wanted to make a card for her with a cat on it....I recently won this Nifty Fifties cricut cartridge on ebay for 18.50!...and I'm so excited to use it for the first time! It has the coolest cat on it....not to mention other amazing old school items...but it was the perfect cat for my mother. She also LOVES pink and so the theme is a vintage cat, damask background, ribbon and pearls. I also used my favorite cricut cartridge...George Basic Shapes for the hearts and for the pink background behind the cat, I used my cuttlebug D'vine swirls. Of course there are 3D pop dots...they are so addicting! lol
Here is the front view of my card for my dear beloved mother:

Here you can see the pop dots:
A close up of this cute cat...I used my Signo white pen for the dots on the cat...i just love that pen on black...its so purr-fect!
Hope you were inspired by my card this week and come on over to Cricut 360 to play with us. Lots of inspiration by the rest of our DT! Here is also this week's PRIZE!

See you there!
