Beach Dogs

Good Morning,

Today I would like to show you a birthday card that I made for someone I love very much.  I can't say her name because it is not her birthday yet!

I am hoping my coloring of fur has gotten better since I took the Kit and Clowder class.  The digital stamp is from  Aurora Wing Stamps on Etsy.  I colored the background with a combination of Copic Markers and Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking Ink I colored t  he dogs with Copic Markers.  The background paper was made using Powder Puff Chalking ink.  The sentiment is from Quick Quotes also.

Here is the inside of the card:

I used two sentiments, the birthday sentiment is from my stash, the Beach sentiment is from Close to my Heart "Seaside Scrapbooking Workshop"

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
