Summertime & the living is easy

Good Afternoon All, I hope you are all well, I am sharing a fun card I made using this gorgeous fun
stamp from Penny Black  I have had him for years now. I have coloured him up with my Graph'It markers, I made it into a sort of tent card so the image is on the inside i cut a square out of the front of the card, I cant remember where the paper is from but it was perfect for this card, the die cut ropes and die cut shells are from Marianne creatables.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Kevin, this card is adorable! Love how you inserted the image within the card and built the scene around the lounging kitty. Fantastic coloring! Thanks so much for sharing this card with Retro Rubber... it certainly brought a smile to my face. Hope to see you often in our gallery! (And thanks for mentioning how long you have had this cute stamp image!)

Hallo lieber Kevin,
ich bin mal wieder begeistert was für zauberhafte Werke du in den letzten Tagen gestaltet hast,eine schöner als die Anderen.Ganz besonders hat es mir die Karte und die Kerze zum Thema Peace on Earth angetan,aber auch deine heutige Karte ist wieder wunderschön,das Motiv könnte ja mein Kater Odin sein,
