Birthday card for Carol

I made this card for my Sister in Law who has just turned 40.
It took a while and with the humidty we have been having lately I found it hard as the paper kept curling.
I made this easel card by using my cricut to cut out the background behind the puppy and stuck this to jac paper which I then peeled off and added glitter. I also coloured the lace using glimmer mists and inked the edges of the paper layers with distress inks. The stamp is from  the Dogs range at hookedoncraft and the image I used was called D-0009 Cute Puppy large. The butterfly was punched out using a Martha stewart butterfly punch and also added to jac paper which was also glittered.

The 40 is actually chipboard numbers which I painted in gold ink and used gold micro beads to enhance it. I have also used these in the centre of the flower the puppy is holding. The paper flowers and leaves were actually white and I coloured them with glimmer mists. The plain white flowers and leaves can be purchased here.

 I also made the decorative trinket pin sticking out from the flowers.

I am entering this card into One stop craft challenges where the theme this week is numbers.

Please feel free to leave a comment as I would love to hear what you think
