An old dog....

Good morning to you!
I am posting up early today as we have a busy day ahead of us...This was supposed to go on here yesterday but there were problems with the BT exchange in our area so no computer ...all day!!!
I had some card orders come in on Friday and one of them is for a Nan's 80th birthday! The theme given to me was a dog in a garden...and this card is an exact copy but without the '80th birthday Nan' quote on it. I loved how it turned out so I wanted one for my stock basket.

I used my very old Sizzix dog die and the last scrap of this beautiful floral paper.
As it was for an older lady I wanted to make it look a bit more vintage so I used a cream background with a darker sage green for the layers. This also ties in with
Die Cut Dreams Challenge this week which is 'Vintage...No colouring allowed'

The butterflies are from my stash and came from Wilkinsons! Layered punched flowers with tiny jewel centres...Martha Stewart doily punch top and bottom.
Other challenges are;
One Stop Craft challenge....'things with wings'
Flutterby Wednesday...'Butterflies, Fairies or Angels'
Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge...'Flowers and wings'
The Creative Cottage Challenge...'Things with wings'

Gold organza ribbon around the centre and just a few ties of the dusky pink.

Thanks for visiting and pop back tomorrow for all the news and gossip from our busy day! Bye for now...♥
