Happy Birthday - Purple Glitter Cat

I made this card for my SIL who's birthday was on the weekend, she loves purple and cats.  Yes, I am having a phase of Joy Fold cards at the moment.  These so much fun and a great way to use a whole heap of patterned paper.  The paper I have used this time is from Kaiser Craft - Be Mine - Besotted.  Also some bazzill card.  The left purple panel I have run through my 'Happy Birthday' embossing folder.  The inside purple panel I used one of my daughters old stamp pens.  The paw print was perfect.  This wonderful cat image (freebie) I found over at Dawn's blog ages ago and finally found the right card for it.  I have coloured it with my Aquamarkers and added some Kindy Glitz.  I pinpricked around the edge of the topper and joined it with black lines for faux stitching.  Cut a circle of black card and wrapped it in black thread which I thread through the last two holes.  So now the cat has a ball of wool to play with. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
