4 Legged Friends - Sweet Stampin

Well I cant believe its Saturday already, this week has flown by - I think its been all the sun!! ;) lol.  It was certainly tricking trying to photograph my card due to all the rays coming through the window!  :D LOL

My card today is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin where this week our theme is '4 legged friends' :)  awww!  We are sponsored by the brilliant Joanna Sheen for our monthly prize and also the fabby Whimsy Stamps for our weekly prize, so 2 chances of winning a great prize :)

I used a cute little Penny Black stamp, and hand-stitched Fizzy Moon and MME papers onto crisp white bazzill card.  I thought I would try just punching 2 sides of the backing card with the MS punch to give it a different look, and I think it turned out ok, and then added some candy pink and white twine in a cross-stitch. 

The dies are a mix of Doo-Hickey and spellbinders and the bow is Anna Griffin.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Paper Sundaes - Ribbon and Pearls
Marianne Design Divas - Pearls and Swirls
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Oldie But Goodie - Dies & Punches
Passion 4 Promarkers - Bright and Light
Creative Inspirations - Animal Antics
Do You Stack Up - Circles

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and I hope everyone has a smashing weekend! :)

A button seems to have jumped on when you weren't looking! Love the two-sided punching - especially with your twine decoration. Lovely soft colours & again those little bits of snow around the image are a treat.
