Walking the dog

Hello there,

As it's the first of the month it's time for a new Pearly Sparkles challenge, over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog. Our theme this month is Cats or Dogs. I decided to make a birthday card, which will either go to a dog mad friend or niece. I used some dies I've had for a very long time, which is great, but I'm not sure of the exact provenance of some of them!

I do hope you'll join us over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog this month and share your makes with us.

Butterfly die, ribbon and gold pearls from my stash
