A Basket Full Of Puppies

Hello and happy Tuesday. I don't know when it was the last time i was able to post so early my card... Today's sketch over on ISMAKI was just so perfect to use with my new stamps i just received from Helene and i was so happy to get them all inked up today.
I don't know if the picture shows it well even it is a close up - on the mat of the main image is Stickles to just set the image even more up from all the layers. The focal point image is airbrushed in the center with a yellow shade and the outer area with blues. Tilda and the puppy are cut out and popped up with foam tape. This time i colored the puppies light brown to make them look like Golden Retrievers :-)
The paper with the bird was part of the panel with the bird i used for the front of the card. It was too pretty to just have it wasted, so i gave this piece center stage in the inside of my card.


Stamps: Magnolia with puppy and the flower in the inside of the card are all by Magnolia
Tilda with puppy can be found in the Love Collection 2008
the cute basket is by Alota Rubberstamps and is part of the very new Easter stamp release!
Paper/CS: Making Memories "Cloe's Closet", So Saffron, Kiwi Kiss, Bordering Blue
Embellishments: Hero Arts buttons, Satin Ribbon by Martha Stewart, Prima Flowers, Stickles
