Tuesday is new release day over at  Bugaboo. Jodie has made several versions of the dog Charlie, personally I love them all, and this is the latest addition.

I colored the image with my Promarkers, added glitter glue to the balloon and cut out the image and kraft frame using my new much loved Dienamics stitched oval dies.
I love the combo of blue with kraft, so I embossed the top panel using a chevron EF and placed it onto a DP with spots, from Doodlebug Design.
The rosette I made using a Tim Holtz die and I added a stamped birthday greeting to it.
Finally I added 3 yellow pearls.

I also wanted to show you the inside of my card, not because there's something spectacular about it, but it's a typical "me" design for cards that aren't meant for much more than a small personal greeting. I love my papers and don't let much go to waste, so I typically cut out the centre of all papers, and the leftovers are either used to make the inside or goes into my scrap pile. There's a reason for why my scrap pile is huuuuge.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:
1) Little Claire's - Use kraft card
2) Creative Knockouts - #87 Complete The Inside of Your Card
3) Creatalicious Challenges -  #74 Embossing (dry)
4) Craft Your Passion - Always Anything Goes

Youmhabe reminded me I am always forgetting to add glitter to my cards! Looks great on the balloon. The DSP is the perfect match for the Kraft and blue. I wish I would take the time to decorate the inside of my cards, good way to use up the DSP and looks amazing too x

I'm also in love with the stitched dies, they are so pretty and look great with any design!
This dog is fun and the combination of kraft with blue is delicate and elegant! Also the brown rosette match so well with them! The embosed bakground is very pretty.
Use the leftover to decorate the inside of the some card is a wonderful idea to reduce scraps!!! Great trik, thanks!
