Puppy Post

I've got a just for fun card to share today.  I couldn't resist these cute pups, so I've got a couple to share this week, and this is my first. Isn't he ADORABLE.  I just want to scoop him up for a snuggle.  I'm not sure if I've used this paper before, but it's from my favourite Papermania set.

I've also used my distressing tool that I bought weeks ago from my local craft store, The Craft Room, and have not used until now.  I find it really hard to 'ruin' the edges of lovely papers, but I gave it a go.  It's much easier with the little tool than scissors, but it did create quite a bit of powdery paper bits, so in the end I held it directly over the waste bin while I did it.   I think it looks a bit underdone though, not quite one way or the other, so I'll have to have another try.

I love the C&S look of this card, a pretty paper and a small strip of contrast with a border die, and I've kept it free of embellishments, other than some pearls (couldn't resist!), but I didn't think it needed anything else.

The image was painted with my distress reinkers, and I used my shimmer chalks for the clouds.
