Cool Cat - TLC Progressive Challenge Day 4

I had lots of fun making my first, second and third projects for the Progressive Challenge at TLC Creations. For the fourth day, Paulette challenged us with this unique image:

I wasn't sure what to do with this at first, but then I remembered my newly-acquired papers from Graphic 45's new Raining Cats & Dogs collection. I used both sides of two double-sided sheets. I added letter buttons from my stash to make a funny sentiment. The "Cat's Meow" piece is popped with foam tape to hold the easel. 

The large shape was cut with a Sizzix die from thick letterpress paper. I used the rub-on technique to transfer the image onto it, and colored it with markers & distress inks.

Inspiration/Challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards #74: Dogs &/or Cats
Create with TLC World Cardmaking Day: Progressive Challenge Day 4
Paper Shelter Challenge #175: Fancy fold card

Update: This was the prize winner for Chocolate, Coffee & Cards #74! It was also chosen as the favorite for the 4th day of Create with TLC's Progressive Challenge.

Thank you for visiting & inspiring my crafting!
