Posh Paws :o)

Hi there. Hope you're all having a fantastic Sunday.

Guess what.. today is Corrosive Challenge day, Challenge #20! This week's theme is dogs. For my card I wanted to use a couple of things that I keep threatening to use :o)... my new paw print brads, a tag cutter that Ian bought me recently, my Martha Stewart punch and black. This is what I came up with;

Using my Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie' papers (my fave ones!) I cut out three random shapes and laid them across each other at angles. I then cut out some black cardstock using my Martha Stewart border punch. I cut out a Sizzix tag and added a pink/white gingham ribbon. I then popped out a Craftworks Card tag with the 'happy birthday' sentiment and added this to the tag. I attached the tag using pop dots.

I then cut out some black brackets and the Cuttlebug dog in black and white onto which I stamped dots using my 'Judith' wooden stamp. I inked all of the card edges prior to sticking them down and then doodled some faux stitching around the edges. I then added a black die cut flower in the corner and two paw print brads. Finally I added the dog using pop dots (I always call them pop dots but they are generically called foam pads so I hope you know what I mean!) I gave my little dog a swarowski crystal gem eye and coloured in his nose with a red gel pen.

Dies: Sizzix Dingbats #2 for the brackets, 'Tags, Happy' & Cuttlebug 'Dog',
: Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie', Bazzill cardstock in black
Accessories: Swarowski Gems, Craftwork Cards sentiment tag and 'Best of British' Die Cut Flower, Mei Flower gingham bow and paw print brads, Martha Stewart Scallop Edger Border Punch, 0.1 Copic pen for doodling

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday. I am hoping to make a few cards next week, I've got a list of orders so I need to get my act together lol.
