Critter Love

Hi and welcome back for my second card today!  I'm rushing to get this posted as I just realised the linky at Mojo Monday closes in two hours!

This card was made for the following challenges:  Mojo Monday; Just Us Girls and Sweet Stampin' Challenge.

I'll be quick with my explanation :)  I stamped and Copic-colored the adorable little dog holding his rose, then die-cut both the image panel and a Smoke panel using pierced square dies.  I cut a Slate layer and die-cut the top and bottom with a Basic Stitch Lines die.  The image panel is popped up with foam tape.  The Smoke panel was lightly sponged with Smoke ink and a grid stencil to add interest.  Finally, I colored the rose with Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting.

That dog is so cute, I hate when I see more stamps I really cant live without. He is so cute. As it your card, just brilliant how you did the smoked grey squares on the stitched die cut. Beautiful layout
