BE Inspired #23

I participated in the Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired.  The inspiration picture cracked me up:

And my take:

I used the cats and the sentiment from Sittin Pretty.  I also wrapped some twine around a circle I punched to make a ball of yarn.  I embossed the background with a woodgrain stamp, very similar to the inspiration picture.

Another part of the challenge was to use ribbon since TAWS is joining up with 3 Girl JAM for this challenge.  I wanted to use ribbon to create that ball of yarn, but the twine worked better.  So, I figured I'd turn the cats almost into a winner ribbon.  I thought with the "You're Pawfect" sentiment sitting on the bottom, that would work out perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
