Animals are everywhere at Crafter's Companion this month. The August Challenge is to make something featuring an animal. I chose the adorable Barkley for my card.
I love these beautiful purple papers included in the Everday Papercrafting CD. I used a little Milled Lavender Distress ink on the edges & detail-cut a purple bow to embellish the bottom. I love cutting along those fun faux looped ribbon borders.
I'm also joining Ooh La La Creations where the theme is Inspired by a Song ... while I was making this card, I kept singing ... How Much is that Doggie in the Window ... one of the first songs I remember learning to sing as a child. And at Make My Monday they're celebrating Children's Birthday Cards ... this will be perfect for one of my nieces or nephews.
