Pets Galore!

This weeks theme for the card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters is “Pets Galore” – which gave me the chance to use my new Kanban stamp with the cute little scottie dog.

The image is as usual stamped and coloured with Copics – I then went through the very technical process (not) of finding the right cup/dish/plate to act as the template for the circle. The scalloped edge is made by punching circles which I cut in half and stuck just under the edge of the circle. While I was at work in the shop yesterday I decided that the card needed a nice piece of ribbon and after buying 5 different 1m lengths of ribbon I decided to add a few of them!  I made then in to little ribbon flowers by sewing a running stitch down one edge and drawing it together. the pale green flower is made from velvet rick-rac and makes a nice shaped flower. I finished them with little silver flower beads in the middle.

Don’t forget you have until next Tuesday to add your card to the challenge.
