Seize the Birthday #7 Sketch with CTMH Cozy Cat

Cozy Cat is one of my favorite new stamps from Close To My Heart and I've already made 5 different cards featuring him.  This card follows the Seize the Birthday #7 sketch.  This card is a little larger--5" x 6.5" and uses a new CTMH paper packet called Chantilly.  The cat was stamped onto two different patterned papers (old Buttercup B&T and Chantilly) and the cat was raised from its pillow using 3D Foam Tape.  The greeting was stamped in Ruby ink onto Cotton Candy CS (included in the Chantilly paper packer) and is from a very old wooden stamp (20 +years) and I honestly can't remember who made it.  The label was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 53 layer cut at 3.75") from Ruby CS.  I applied Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to many points and flower centers from the Chantilly paper to add a subtle "bling" to the card.

Here is the Seize the Birthday Sketch:


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
