Hi, for the second time today!!!

The sketch for the week over at the Retrosketches Blog is a great one!!  I love putting tags on cards and had so much fun making my card!!!

This is the sketch:

and my card:

For my card I've used a bg stamp that I first stamped on a piece of scrap paper and then, without re-inking, stamped onto my white cs.  The bg stamp, as well as the cute little poodle, are from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
I've coloured the poodle with coloured pencils.
The banner dies, the pennant trim die and the sentiment stamp are from Verve.
Borderpunch by Upikit.
I've given the punched daisy some shine with Clear 3D Gloss.
Added a twine bow and lots of bling and it was done!!!

It's bedtime here, so I will love you and leave you with that for today!!!

Thanks so much for spending time with me today!!!  I really appreciate your visits and comments a lot!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards

Well, of course, this is a French poodle ... she has so much style and pzazz ... and just look at that little peach number she's wearing ... so chic!! This is so fun, Petra ... such a fab image, lovely delicate border strips and just the perfect amount of bling! Anita :)

Sweet! Love the cute image and the sketch. I looked at it, but thought it wasn't my 'style' so I am skipping this one. You made it look so easy! There is that banner again! Love it!

Just so cute. At first I thought your bg stamping was some paste embossing until I read the post. What a great look you've achieved with the stamp off. That is a darling image and this is a delightful card. TFS & Hugs
