Birthday Dog

This week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge theme is the colour combo of 'Red, White & Blue'...perfect for some of the other 'Patriotic' challenges around this week. I followed the sketch from Card Patterns, and used one of my all time favourite Penny Black stamps...'Birthday Dog'. The patterned paper is form the 'Off Beat' pad by BasicGrey, and I used my Cuttlebug 'Stars' folder to emboss some blue Co'redinations card, sanding the raised area to reveal the lighter coloured centre. I used my star Nesties to cut the stars, and them embossed them with my 'Swiss Dots' folder.
