Puppy Birthday Card for Sister

Hi all,

Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter weekend! I have been making the most of a bit of extra time at home and have made this cute birthday card for a friend, she asked if I could make her a birthday card for her sister which had a black puppy on it. The only digi stamp I had was this one with 3 puppies but I think it has worked well.

I coloured the puppies digi stamp using promarkers then cut it out. I then prepared 3 various sizes circles ready to layer up, the largest circle I edged with Diamond Stickles and the smallest circle I sponged the edges using Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink, I then layered these and various other co-ordinating papers and card to create the final layout, I am loving these Dovecraft Back to Basics papers at the moment, perfect Spring colours! I added ribbon for the puppies to be peeping over and a sentiment tag which was cut and embossed using a Nestabilities Labels 14 die, stamped using Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink and I added a Sister peel off. I lightly sponged the edge of the tag to finish it off and added some lemon coloured pearls.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Pink Gem Challenge - "Pearls & Swirls"
