Classy Cards #124 - Lucky Dog

I have made a card for the new Classy Cards N Such Challenge for this week.  We have an inspiration challenge picture with stuffed puppy dogs on it.  We are suppose to use the colors, stitches or patterns on our cards.  We can use them all if we like.  I went with the colors and with the puppy dogs themselves.

All of the patterned paper that I used in my card including the image came from the Graphic 45 Raining Cats And Dogs Paper Pad.  This paper does all the work and takes the guess out of what papers to put together for a card.

The circle was cut using the Spellbinders Teardrop Circles die.  This set comes with four dies.  I used the Spellbinders
Tool 'n One  to clean my die.  Here is a video on how well it works.  It sure saves a lot of time.

I made my flower using Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose stamps and the matching die.   I sponged them with ink.   I shaped them using the  Paper Blossoms Tool Kit.   I added stickles to the center of the flowers.  I colored the leaves, cut them out and scrunched the tips.  Making flowers just doesn't get any easier than this.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  I hope you will join us for the challenge.

P.S.  Don't forget everything in the Classy Cards Store is 38% off.

  3. Hello Shirley,
    What a bright, cheerful card. I know it's a tartan paper background but it reminds me of some exotic Country. I think it's the vibrant colours. I love it.
