I'm afraid I was tempted by a set of quirky cat stamps offered as a free gift with a recent magazine and there was also a selection of  reasonable quality papers inside as well.  I've used just one of the cat stamps and one of the sentiments to make this brightly coloured birthday card.  The image and words were stamped onto a die cut shape (using the Misti really helped here) and the cat was coloured using watercolour pens.  All that remained was to choose three of the papers and use them to complete the card along with a banner made using a scrap of black card and three card  candi dots. There are more cat images and words which can be combined to make cards for several occasions.

Image - from a set of stamps given free with Making Cards magazine
Papers - also free with the magazine
Banner - strip of card with pointed end punched (Stampin' up punch)
Die cut shapes - set of dies from The Works
Embellishment - card candi from Craftwork Cards
Colouring - watercolour brush pens
