Sending birthday wishes
And now for the paper dog. This card was created for a very dear friend's birthday this month. Although I have a collection of completed cards I always like to make a brand-new, personalized card for my special friends. This card was made using her favourite colours (blue and bright white).
Sliekje. She offers so many adorable images on her blog and never charges a cent for them! I coloured this little guy using Copics (warm greys) and then adhered him to a layered card of patterned paper and shiny Bazzil cardstock. The patterned paper is actually a winter pattern but by carefully placing the image and embellishments over the snowflakes, it ends up being just right for this card. Even though her birthday is in January, she loves all things Spring so it was important to make sure this card used colours and patterns that were very fresh.
Well it's time to walk the dog to the mailbox (a mere block away and quite an acceptable walk for my Larry) and get this card on its way. Have a great day!!!
