Party Pup

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and the theme this week is:

Fussy and Fancy
I have used an adorable decoupage image and papers from the Crafter's Companion Barkley Everyday CD.

As you can see I have made a Birthday card - it is the start of the few months of the year when you don't have to make a Christmas project to enter our challenge, although you can still make a Christmas project if you wish.

To add a little interest to some plain purple paper I used my Impression Obsession Thin Stripes stamp and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to stamp some stripes.  The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs and I added a button with a twine bow.

We have four fabulous sponsors for this challenge

I LOVE Barkley. There is something Clumber-some about him. All he needs is lemon and white markings and he could BE a Clumber Spaniel :oD Gorgeous card and the stripes are a great touch. Lx

What a sweet image. Our dog wears the crown in our family, so really got a kick out of your card. Pauline, your card is so nice, inside and out.

Cute! The type of design that works for any person, of any age! I love to have cards like this at hand. In general I make a personalized card to give for my friends and family, but it happens I get a last minute request for a card, and this type is perfect for such an occasion.
