Puppy Tobie

I can't get enough of this little fella. He is a treat to colour up and perfect for all sorts of male cards! :) This was another commission from late last year for a little Matthew who was two. I made his first birthday card too, so I hope this is gonna be an ongoing thing. He'll have a whole scrapbook worth of cards by the time he's 18! LMAO! :)

I've coloured Tobie up using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from My Minds Eye. I've layered up some brown parcel paper, scalloped borders and punched labels above and below the picture. I wanted to keep the main image panel longer at the bottom to make room for the sentiment - it kinda looks like a polaroid? frame, me thinks. :) That's what I was going for anyway, shhh!! :P

I've stamped both Matthew and Happy Birthday using an alpha set from Lawn Fawn. Matthew has been cut using an X-Cut die and I've added More Mustard brads to each of the holes. #2 has been layered up ontop of some SU! punches and a die cut pinking circle. I've added some thin organza ribbon and lime green twine for texture and outlined some panels with a Real Red marker.

Enjoy your lazy Sunday. xo
