Who's a princess?

This image from Karen's Doodles is just too perfect for anyone who has ever owned (been owned by) a cat. I particularly like the little swirl of hair on her forehead - I can imagine this little princess taking hours getting it just right. I'm torn on just the right occasion for this card so I left the sentiment blank but I'll be able to fill it in as needed.

I'm disappointed that the photo doesn't do justice to the "bling" on the card - I used glossy accents on the details of the settee and on her colour and crown. There is also waterfall blue Stickles added to the crown "jewels" and the colour. The flower centres are clear gems.

I'm thinking about maybe replacing the flowers - at first I thought the yellow was a nice match with the heart collar but on second (third, fourth) glance I'm thinking the contrast with the pink might be too great. What do you think? Should I go with a pink or off-white or brown flowers?

Well, that's it for now. I'm hoping to post a scrapbook layout later today but it will depend on how early the kids go to bed.
