LSC223 - Let's shed some layers

Hello and happy Friday!! So glad I could manage to make a card today, and I was so happy to see that today's LSC on SCS was a one layer card. I love the lots of layer cards but some days I just have enough time for a quick card.

My image is from the clear Penny Black set "critter party". I love this cute little puppy. (As I do all Penny Black stamps!!).
The square where the puppy is stamped on is embossed, after I stamped and colored the dog, I lightly sponged the square using bashful blue ink. Then applied stickles all around it.
I used white as a card base and used SU's scallop edge punch and added strip of purely pomegranate card stock underneath that just for a little bit of color.
The sentiment is from SU's retired set "Wonderful Words". To finish this simple card off, I added a punched out flower (which I also applied stickles too) and a rhinestone brad, as well as some white grosgrain ribbon.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
