Pawfect Birthday

Hi!  Today's card was made using the current sketch at MFT Stamps and also their color challenge.


The colors first put me in mind of Halloween, but I decided to go with a set that I've had since it was released but not yet used.

I stamped this cute image and colored it with Copics before cutting it out with my Scan N Cut.  I put that to one side and worked on the rest of my card.  Patterned paper to the rescue with black and white stripes on the top and bottom and some polka dots in Wild Wisteria in the centre piece.  I added a slanted sentiment strip cut from Steel Gray cardstock and then a Lavender Fields stitched circle before adding the girl with foam tape on top.  I finished the card with some Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal Drops.


I'm also entering this card into Southern Girls Challenge as they're looking for critters and dogs are my favorite critters 😄


Thanks for visiting.
