Today, we are featuring the "In My Mother's Garden" stamp set:

For my card, I wanted to spotlight the two cats on the garden gate stamp.  I stamped the two cats and sentiment then punched them out with a circle punch.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background panel.  I completed the card by adding ginham ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers and a few half pearls.
