AAA cards challenge #38: there's a hole in my card

AAA cards challenge #38: there's a hole in my card.

And let me tell you, it looks like it wasn't my best crafty day as I messed this card up more times than I care to count....
Infact halfway through I started on another one with a lovely easy peasy die cut and stamp from Lawn Fawn, but I wasn't going to give up surely?
So I bit the bullit and carried on.

The  back of the cats is my favorite part.

Hope you like it..still sweating lol...this card brought me to breaking point, seriously...

 Here are my adorable cheeky twins sleeping "comfortably"on top of laundry tower.

the sentiment is from Joy Craft's cherry blosson tree set.
