I started by stamping the pup on the right onto white cardstock and cutting it out. I then placed him where I wanted him onto the faded flowers background then stamped the pup on the left. I added a piece of polka dot ribbon to the left side of the card.
For the inside I picked a lightly pattern paper and stamped the pup again. I wanted a bit of a pattern on the inside but did not have enough of the scraps to use the papers on the inside so I picked one that went with the colors on the front.
I stamped the "happy tails to you!" onto white cardstock then matted it in black. I added a button with twine with a few of the stamped bones behind it.
Tomorrow Lucky will be hosting on the Card A Day Blog.
Thanks for stopping by.
