A dog is not just for Christmas…..

…..but this little dog from Pink Gem is just perfect for Christmas. He is one of the first Pink Gem stamps that I ever bought, so it decided  to dust him off once again and give him some exercise!

He's so simple to colour and, to my mind, he just has to be white, which meant that the whole stamp took little more than 5 minutes to colour in.

I made the card shape using one of my grand nests, which meant the letting was easy as all I had  to do was pick a slightly smaller die.

The beautiful papers are taken from my Hollybobs CD…definitely my favourite CD of the moment, and I coloured the trees to match the tree paper that you see just poking out from behind the image.

To add a bit of graduation around the edges of the image I did a bit of stippling with a distress ink, before finally adding some die cut snowflakes, a few pearls and she glitter.

So that's my card for today…..hope the dog lovers out there like it.  :-)

Finally here are a few card challenges that I would like to enter…..
