I made another quick and simple 'Thank you' card to give to a friend who is very much a dog-lover and is, in fact, a Dog Chiropractor by trade. They were treating my old dog Jessie (who passed away last week) and made her final few weeks a lot happier and with less pain from her stiff, arthritic joints.
I love to make square cards and though it would suit this cute dog image so I'm popping this card into the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge CAS56 - 'It's hip to be square!". See this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=482190 for the deets.
The image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, and then I lightly chalked around the image with my Kaisercolour chalks and added pink I-Kan-dee pearlescent chalk here and there so the card shimmers a little (not sure if you can see by my photo). The 2 tiny pink hearts next to the sentiment are the leftover punchies from my EK Success Arrows Border punch (they look like tiny hearts) and I added some Kindyglitz to the hearts as well as the rose.
There is a Scor-Pal line underneath the ribbon and above the brown/pink cardstock border (hard to see the brown one on the photo). To do the bottom border, I punched brown cardstock with my Martha Stewart Checkerboard edge punch then I simply glued some pink cardstock underneath so I ended up with the pink and brown checkerboard pattern which I thought would look pretty and match the pink and brown ribbon.
