A card for a female

This month, over at Patties Creations,
the challenge is...
"for the girls."

I have been after an excuse to use this image "country shelf" for a while. 
It didn't disappoint!

I used it to make a card for my Mother in Law.
(and I shall be making another version for my Mum, ]for her birthday,
in a couple of months  - as I know
she would love this too.)

I coloured the image first, 
then hunted through all my papers to find matching coloured
sheets to use.
Could I find anything like, in all my stash?
So... I hand coloured some white card, 
with my spectrum noirs and promarkers -
the same ones I had coloured the images with! 
Am I mad? Maybe...

I popped the image on 3d pads so it would stand off the card a little. 
The bottom white edge and the cat are diecut
 and the bottom edge of the blue, is punched.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Perhaps, we are both mad because I've colored my own cardstock, too. Your card is lovely. Thanks for playing at Great Impressions Stamps May Challenge. Hugs, Debi
