A Paper China Cat!

How many of you have a little stash, or maybe a big stash of off cuts of paper?  Why is as crafters we just can't through paper away!  So I've been trying to think of ways to use these up and I came up with this patchwork cat.  I used a template I found online to give me the shape and cut and place the paper pieces before gluing them to make sure I was happy with the layout.  It is adhered to mirri board and onto a white card blank with a simple sentiment.  Unfortunately the mirri does make it rather difficult to take a decent shot but I was pleased with the finished card, and it reminded me of one of those ornamental china cats.
