My Terrible Twosome

Hello everyone, today over on Cupcake Challenge 76 we have a theme of four legged and furry which has been set by our very own Shelly. We are sponsored this week by our regular sponsor, Simon Says Stamp and they are giving us a prize of a $20 gift certificate + free shipping. I am also entering this card into Penny Black Challenge 86 which has a theme of someone special - I made this card for Jeff's Mum's birthday.

Well there is a little tale behind this card - Jeff's Mum really likes our dogs so for her birthday card I decided to use my PB stamp and colour him in to "look like" our two dogs. Monkey is supposed to be on the front and Charlie on the inside......

Can you tell??!...... No, niether can I!!! lol!! Ah well, the idea was good but I'm not sure if I pulled it off!!!

Anyway, onto the card... the images have been coloured with distress inks and the DP is from Basic Grey. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment on the inside is from Whiff of Joy.

To finish, my usual close up.

Card/Paper: Yellow and white card, Basic Grey - Lemonade
Stamps: Penny Black and Whiff of Joy
Colouring: Distress inks
Embellishments: Ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, waterbrush

Thanks for looking x
