Animal or Pet

Welcome to the first challenge of 2016 over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday. This week's challenge is to make something with an ANIMAL/PET. I chose to use a silhouette image from our sponsor for January -  Stitchy Bear Designs.

I cut the image using a Spellbinders die and one to back the cardbase. I heat embossed the sentiment in silver across the image, I very much like how it looks IRL. I also added WOS and glitter glue, not so easy to capture in the photo though. 3 purple flowers in each corner just to add a little bit of color.

This card is also for these challenges:
Allsorts - What's new? (image and flowers)
Come and Get It - Something New (image and flowers)
Glitter n Sparkle - #169 Anything Goes

I think the combination of the monochrome chevron with all the 'pretty' elements is inspired. It gives it a modern edge and is so stylish.
