Spring Into Fashion

Morning Everyone!

I would like to welcome my new followers and 
give everyone a big THANK-YOU for your lovely comments.
Your comments truly inspire me to create something better each time. 

Today, I have a funky spring card to share with you.
I love this British Bulldog from Crafty Individuals.
I thought I would make a spring card to showcase its beauty.

I water colored the image with TH Distress Ink Pads.
I dabbed spring colors on the scarf and added some sparkles.
My son suggested that I add some light blush on the cheeks 
and color her lips red to make her more lady like.
I think she looks rather fashionable and beautiful.

There is a pull-out tag attached to the ribbons.
I stamped the sentiments on DP using Justrite alphabets.
The post mark and script are Magnolia stamps.
The DPs are from Pion Design Fairytale of Spring collection.
Dies used are from Spellbinders, Memory Box and Tim Holtz.

The following embellishments are available from The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Wooden heart button, cream seam binding ribbon,
ivory and natural button twines, WOC pale pink lily flower
baby pink sweetheart blossom, and ivory gardenia.

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you all a wonderful day!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
