Birthday Pooches


I have a birthday card today done in shades of blue, black and white. I used 2 I.O. die-cut dogs along with a Poppystamps dachshund dog, adding a MFT tiny tag and a hand-cut mat beneath it. The white embossing was done with a decorative dots EF, while the blue horizontal panel was done with a square lattice ef - both from SU! The sentiment was done with a TE stamp and I added some aqua droplets of Nuvo glitter for the dog's eyes. as well as randomly on the card. The final touch was some aqua and blue twine from the twinery tied onto the mini tag. The card base is turquoise.

 I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
