Cat sitting on boxed present

Hello again,
another full day today. I went with Mum to a specialist appointment for her Diabetes and she is doing really well after having really high readings for ages. I get to hear the advice she is given and hopefully that will help me also if I ever have to go onto insulin. We then popped in to a place called "The Shoe Shed" to have a look for some shoes for the wedding but they were either too casual or had huge skinny heels on them. I can't wear anything high! Just need something with a small heel or wedge. I then dropped her home and came back here, had a bit of lunch and then my OH and I went out to the airport to pick up our son, this time he did actually arrive!!
He showed us some pics tonight on our tv and we also had a barbeque with a few of his friends and also another one of our sons and his fiancee. It was a lovely night until the mozzies decided to put in an appearance. One of the couples had a new bubs only 3 months old but really tiny little boy, he was only 2.3kg when he was born. I got to have a cuddle with him. A really sweet little baby.
I've washed most of the dishes and then sat down for a play with my cardstock and images.
Here is what I came up with:
Base is SU Basic Black cardstock. I punched a strip of pink with a SU punch. As I was following a sketch, Merry Monday Challenge #6. (I was too late to enter the challenge though). I added a panel going across the card and then the image was stamped onto white card, coloured with ink using a blender pen (I actually coloured this one a while ago and haven't had time to dig out the stamp to see who made it) I cut it out and then adhered it to a topper of black card on a white piece. The sentiments (inside and out) are from SU Petite Pairs and inked in Basic Black. I also added a few pink bling on the bottom (not in the sketch) and also a very small bling on the cat's collar.

I am entering this into the following:
