Creative Card Crew DT post-challenge 60-Girlie

Hi all!!
Hope you are all well! 
I am doing ok-been really busy-too busy to go in my new craft room!! It is finally finished-apart from curtains (but I don't need those to craft!)
It is really lovely to have all my bits and pieces in the one place and with a new table to work at thats just for me!

I have made a card for the Creative Card Crew challenge-girlie. The prizes are from The Scrapping Centre and A Day for Daisies.
I am not great with girlie things but I thought flowers are always girlie so I paper pieced this gorgeous little cat from A day for Daisies digi using some freebie paper in my stash.

I have used some white webbing stuff sent by my mum and I used a Katy Sue flower stamp to create a small border.
The flowers and brad are from Docrafts.
I'm not sure where the sentiment is from, and the lace is from the market!!
I coloured the chair with promarkers.

Thank you for any comments you may leave!
I am entering my card in the following challenges:

spring time flapper DT card

Hi everyone! hope you are well.
We have had some fab weather here in Lincoln! sunshine and no rain. makes me feel like summer is coming at last!
We are just finishing off our new extension-well Pete is finishing it and I am supervising form the sofa (pregnancy has advantages after all)!! My new craft room is going to be the first room to be completed hopefully!!

At Creative Card Crew it is challenge time again-this time the theme is Spring.
The prize is from Marieanne Designs and Lacey Sunshine
I have used an image from Lacey Sunshine called Eleanor 1920's flapper and I have created a folding pop up box!

I don't have much in the way of 1920's papers or embellishments but I found a Debbie Moore Cd with Art Deco. I used some gold mirri card as a background and covered it with the art deco papers.

The umbrella is a die from memory box as are the forget me not stems which you can just see at the back.
I have embossed in gold onto the grey card and added some Docrafts gems. the feathers are from my stash.

As for looking like spring-mmmmm!! I have based my colours on pansys and think the umbrella could be spring like!

I also made a card with a bigger version of the image using embossed gold mirri card and some card from my stash.

hope you like it-thank you for any comments you may make.
