A glimpse of Heaven

Greetings all, thanks for stopping by. Today's card was inspired by Cali's recent weather patterns.... clouds, clouds, and more clouds. And since we're near Valentine's day, here you go.
I don't have a lot of red pattern paper or Valentine themed designer paper I improvised with my own creation. I started off with a basic white card stock and layered it with the paper I sponged clouds on. For the sponging I used a piece of SU! Scallop punch circle, held it tight with my fingers and sponged with SU!Baja Breeze craft ink. Start from the top of the paper and work your way down.
Next, I wanted to add an additional cloud piece where I added the drifting cat and my sentiment. I've had this image for years... I purchased it a little place in Long Beach that closed its door for some time now.

So then I added more dimension by lifting it with another plain piece and added the 3 brads on the bottom and the 3 ribbon pieces on its side. For some reason the number 3 has had some significance for me... maybe because it just three siblings in my immediate family... ah who know? lol And for the final touch, the small Valentine salutations from SU! A Happy heart set.

I hope you like. See ya!
