Curious Cat Card

Hello everyone.
So sorry for disappearing from Blogland for such a long time - just had a few hand issues, and a total lack of inspiration.
I have made this card ready for my interactive card class next week, and its my first card for about 10 days - how bad is that!!! It has a shutter style opening on the front, which reveals a message when the card is opened, as the panels slide back. It has been adapted from an idea of a card in the book, Interactive Cards by Tanya Fox. I have changed the sizings, and apertures to match the stamps and punches I had available. The gemmed cat is from an Inkadinkadoo stamp set, as is the sentiment inside.
I'd like to enter it in the following challenges;
Charisma Cardz - Try something new (I've never made a card of this style before)
Fab 'n' Funky - "What 'eav"
The Creative Cottage - Celebrations
Penny's Paper Crafty - Happy Birthday
A Spoonful of Sugar - Animal crackers
My Time To Craft - Jewelled
Incy Wincy - Celebrate
Thanks for looking, and hopefully I'll be back soon,
Sharon xx
