Pink & Gray Birthday


 A friend of mine recently asked me to make a card for her that had a cat and dog on it, so this is what I came up with. I used a Prisma textured gray cardstock base, along with some SU! powder pink cardstock which was embossed with a CB birthday ef. I added a die-cut border with a SNSS retired ribbon die, and wove some pink & black gingham ribbon through the ovals. The dog was an IO die, while I'm not sure of the cat's manufacturer as a friend die-cut several and shared them with me. The sentiment was die-cut with Gina Marie Designs dies, and the final touch was some black Nuvo drops added just for fun.

I'm sharing this with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies 16th challenge -   add a critter to your card.

Also sharing with Cute Card Thursday #538 - ribbons and bows

Thanks for spending a few moments of your day with me, and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Your friend surely has been delighted by this card, it's a great take of her request! :) Love the cat and dog silhouettes and that diecut border with the matching gingham ribbon through the ovals! Very beautiful texture of the embossed background, too! Well done!

Oh Carol, I am loving this card! The color combo is fabulous and I love the embossing but what I love the best is how you decorated on top of the embossing! I never would have thought to do that without another piece of cardstock on top of it. I love this so much! I will be CASing this one! To bad that ribbon die was discontinued as it is pretty cool. Hugs, Brenda

A perfect birthday card for any dog and cat lover. I like the way you've threaded the ribbon through the pretty lacy border. That is a great oldie EF, and one I forget to use. TFS & Chill out.
