Yappy Birthday

I needed a birthday card for my niece.  She loves animals so I went through my stash and found this little dog in the Furry Friends set from Avery Elle!  It looks just like my dog, Bella, so I knew my niece would like a card made with it.  I looked on Pinterest and found an adorable inspiration card made by Lindsey Bailey, you can see her card here.  I didn't have the same alphabet so I used alphabet dies from My Favorite Things.  I just looked for the link but they must be retired already.

I used Copics to color the dog, cut letters in coordinating colors and punched some little flower embellishments.  Glitter paper strips, tiny jewels and some white twine finished the card off.  

I spiffed up the inside with some strips of decorative paper and punched flowers and added a pocket for a gift card.  The sentiment is one of my favorites.  It comes from an MFT set called Make a Wish.

My thanks again to Lindsey for the inspiration and than you for stopping by.
Keep stamping,


  1. This is so sweet! Beautifully coloured little dog, it looks so furry. Lovely choice of papers and alphabet. I love the flower on the dogs ear, so cute. Your niece is sure to adore this card. Debra x
