One of my favorite techniques is the Press N Seal technique.  It makes arranging several pieces on a card so easy.  Especially if you are wanting to pop some of the pieces up.  This card is made using the Pampered Pets Bundle and product from the Playful Pets Suite from Stampin Up!  I needed a sympathy card for a friend of mine who lost a beloved cat.  I thought this card would be perfect as all the cats show a different personality found in cats.  Hopefully it will uplift and bring back some fun memories of her wonderful cat!
