I was looking through my never ending pile of Gelli papers and came across this quirky looking one, I just added some stencil  here and there to fill in some white spaces.I had this cat stamp that I had got myself and didn't know what to do with so I thought it would go well with this paper. 

I quite liked the sentiment too which is from a LawnFawn set. The stamps were all inked up with black Versafine .xxx
