A Cute Card with a Puppy and a Rose

Hello and welcome!

I took a little blogging break while Allsorts challenge was having a two week theme (hubby was on vacation and we worked on some home repairs during this time) but I'm back today with a new card for our new theme at Allsorts challenge. It's another 2-week theme so plenty of time to join us for your chance to win one of the two prizes on offer this time. We have a beautiful flower stamp to give away and we also welcome a new sponsor, Ruth Hamilton Design where you can win a digi prize.

Our theme is "Roses" with an "Anything Goes" option, so do feel free to link up all your crafty makes for a chance to win!

The inky background with blue and green distress inks was done some time ago and  I found it in my box of "extras". Thought it would make a good background for the cute puppy from  the set Critter Party. It's been stamped using Memento ink and colored with Copic markers then fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors.

I wanted a little more interest on the background, so I got out my Penny Black Butterfly Suite stamp and stamped it onto the previously inked background using Stampin Up's retired Bashful Blue ink. 

Before adhering the dog, I added a strip of striped patterned paper to the card, then inked the edges. 
The sentiment is from Penny Black's set Sprinkles and Smiles (also on Amazon), stamped with Versafine Onyx ink onto the white card front.

While this is another 2 week challenge, I do have some more card posts scheduled for this coming week... and I am really hoping to finish my post of some Chicago pictures I took a few weeks ago. I've worked on it for a bit but with my husband on vacation, as well as some workers here at the house I just haven't gotten around to picking my favorite pictures out yet. Then on top of that I got sick a few days ago with a cold and spent any free time reading so definitely neglected blogging. I really need to get my act together though!!

A very soft but effective background for the PB image with his Rose Ellie. I find a stash of backgrounds so useful.
