Guest Designer - 2 Crafty Critters

I was invited, by 2 Crafty Critters, to be  Guest Designer for March and I was pleased to accept. The image was supplied by their sponsor for this challenge, Limited Runs. I chose the image Puppy Love and decided to make a birthday card for my great nephew William. I have a dog called Lily and William hasn't seen her so this card will be to show him Lily. lol You'll have guessed by her name that she is white so no colouring on the image apart from two little pink touches on her ears. I also coloured the envelope with my Ivory Promarker before adding William's name.

This is Lily.

My card blank is a 6x6 by Craft UK. The sheet of silver metallic paper is from a DCWV pad and it was matted on to bright blue card by Papermill. The image was cut with a Spellbinders large oval die and matted on to the large scalloped red die cut. The red card is also from Papermill. I used the number 6 from the Spellbinders alphabet/number die set, cut it in blue and set this on the bottom right corner. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and I fussy cut it before adding to another Spellbinders die cut, in red. The little bow at the top is from a separate die which I thought was a Memory Box die but I'm not sure. The star/flower in the top right is from the same die, it hangs from the bottom of the bow, but cut in blue. Obviously I cut two in different colours and then used the bow of one and the star/flower of the other. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Dragonfly Journeys - Year of the Dog
Crafting with Friends - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes/Optional Twist Birthday
Creative Crafters - Anything Goes
Tinker - Dream - Birthday/Party

Thank you all for visiting. Please leave Lily some love.
