INTAAS Card not square or rectangle

Come and join us with the challenge theme of 'Card not square or rectangle' over at International Art and Soul.

My card blank started off as a Craft UK 7x7 square but I cut it with a large Spellbinder oval die. The yellow paper is double sided from a pad of freebie papers with Cardmaking and Papecraft magazine. I cut two ovals in smaller sizes using the two different sides of the paper as the mat for the ornate Spellbinder heart which I cut in white. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Lili of the Valley vintage set and I coloured the tiny flowers on it with my Promarkers before cutting with another Spellbinder die, this time a circle. The finishing touch was a Snipart embellishment from Craftbox at the top left.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - A birthday sentiment
Through the Purple Haze - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Happy Birthday
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes

INTAAS one word sentiment used numerous times

Come along to International Art and Soul and join us in the challenge theme of 'One word sentiment used numerous times'. 

My card is a 7x7 by Craft UK. The pale blue card is by Papermill and it's embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder. The image is called Flowerpuppy and is by Bugaboo. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then matted it on to bright orange card fro Papermill. The image and the orange mat were cut with Spellbinder dies. I generated the word Hello in various fonts in orange before cutting each one with a Spellbinder die. I decided on different shapes for each Hello. I hope my great nephew likes this year's birthday card.

My favourite animal is a dog hence my card. We had cats for almost 50 years but after my husband died my sons persuaded me to get a dog for company. My last two cats died not long after I got the puppy so I was pleased that I'd ventured into the dog world. Every time I walk the dog I meet other dog walkers and they invariably speak to me. Lily is so friendly that she stops everyone so that they'll pet her and they all fall in love with her. She is my best friend.
