I have kept this one simple again (who knows I may still yet get the knack of CAS).
The Embossing folder is by Sue Wilson and is called Basket Weave. 
I cut the image and sentiment with my Perfect Layers tool and used a corner rounder. The sentiment is a wood mounted stamp from my stash and the cat dies are all by Poppy Stamps.
