Happy Birthday

This birthday card features an image from The Paper Shelter called, Teacup Yorky.

I was lucky enough to win a prize from The paper Shelter a while ago and this is one of the images I chose, because of Sasha, our little dog..  She is a very little dog, at 17 months she stands about 7 inches tall and weighs a whopping 2.5 kilos.  We are often asked if she is a Yorky, no she isn't, she comes from a mixed heritage and happens to be a bit of a runt.  But her personality probably weighs about 200 kgs.

The image has been coloured with copic pens and diecut and layered onto embossed paper. I've added a string bow to the sentiment tag.

Dream Valley - Things with Wings (the butterfly)

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #190- 321 Recipe - 15/2/18

Another great challenge over at The Crafter's Cafe,
 a recipe theme 321
3 papers, 2 butterflies and 1 flower.

Sponsors for this fortnight's challenge are:

Prize: 2 images

 Prize: 4 images

Prize will be individually designed for the Winner.

I received an image from Rick St Dennis called "Clive" and as my song journal is nearly full, decided to start one with stories, this one is probably an urban myth, but it is funny!

Clive had been coloured with copic pens, fussy cut and layered onto the papers.

The 3 papers I have used are from stampin up, green striped background; I decoupaged two wooden butterflies and punched the grass/weeds at his feet with a patterned paper.
And, my flower is the daffodil in the image.
