Rainbow Glimmer Paper for #TGIFC313 Inspiration Challenge

Hi, Crafty-Happy Stampers!
Today's card is an entry for #TGIFC313 Inspiration Challenge, all about cats and dogs. Cats, that's all about me! I have had cats my whole life and presently have 5. I'll show you a few of them after I present my card.
This card starts with a Basic Black card base of 11" x 4 1/4". I next added a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of our gorgeous Rainbow Glimmer paper. If you haven't seen this paper before, you  need to check it out. This piece I used came from the section that has the green tones blending into the blues and purples. The rest of the glimmer paper blends into the colors of the rainbow, thus the name.

I punched out a white moon from some retired Sparkle Glimmer paper with a 2 1/4" Circle Punch and a black cat with our Cat punch. Friendly Silhouettes dies provided the cattails for the cat to hide behind. The Well Written dies simply say happy birthday. I also added a bow across the bottom from Mint Macaron ribbon.
Perfect birthday card for a cat lover, like me. Below are CT, on the left, and S'more on the right. CT got her name from her tail as she was born with a crooked tail. We found her in my brother's closet about 12 years ago, and bottle fed her. Her mom had found a hole in the back wall of the closet and placed her litter of 4 there. We found homes for the other 3.

I came up with S'more's name 2 ways: she looks like the inside of a S'more and I got her from my neighbors, who had a bunch of kittens. I had already gotten 3 from them, but decided I needed some more!! They are not related, but love to hang out together. 
This big boy is Mink. I thought his coat looked like mink, hence the name. He's the only boy of the group of 5.

This pretty girl is Mink's sister, Paisley. Her name came from the weird fur design around her eye that resembles a paisley design. The only cat missing is Onyx, who is solid black, and very camera shy. These 4 are only 5 years old.

 So now you know the story of me and my cats, but I hope you like my card along with my cat stories. 

This is really a very simple, but beautiful card. Unfortunately, all the supplies I used on this card, except the Basic Black cardstock, Rainbow Glimmer paper, and cat punch, have sold out. The Cat punch will retire Monday. Hopefully, you may already own these and will be able to make this card.
