Birthday Dog

This card uses one of my most favourite Penny Black stamps...'Birthday Dog'...he was one of the first ones I bought, but he still gets inked up regularly. The papers are all from the 'Max & Whiskers' pad by BasicGrey, and I distressed the edges using my distressing tool. The 'bone' ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the little bone charm was from a seller on Ebay, the sentiments are from a little Studio G set, and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border.

Challenges for this card:
