Birthday Dog...Pretty in Pastels

This is the first of three cards I made last weekend featuring my favourite stamp...'Birthday Dog' by Penny Black. Usually he ends up on masculine cards...but this time I thought I'd pair him with some pretty pastel papers (from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment is from a little set by Wild Rose Studio, and the adhesive pearls are from Hobbycraft.
