Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today.  Cats certainly have lots of personality and Whiskers is no exception.  Whiskers is showing off her star-spangled crown in this fun card!  Let me show you how I made this card.

Optional – Since I had some extra pieces of Whiskers, I decided to put just her head on the back of my card.
