Foiled background

Earlier this year, during a major lack of mojo period, I watched some videos on YouTube where foil and a laminator were used. I got inspired, got the equipment needed and made a lot of backgrounds. This purple plaid background was part of the first batch I made.

I used a stencil, cat stamp and sentiment , all from Tim Holtz. The stamps are part of a Christnas set, I might use this a Christmas card, but I think it would work for other occassions/seasons as well? What do you think?

The cat reminds me of my mother and sister, they are always freezing. I, on the other hand, am on the other end of the scale.

This card is also for:
Cutie Pie Challenge - #158 Raining cats and dogs
Make My Monday - #146 Checks or plaids
