Gosh, that is a fabulous belt and buckle die! I love it with this cute dog...but it is very versatile and could be used with anything.
Can see it strapped around a passel of books for a Bookworm birthday gift card...or many other ideas!

Wonderful card.

Such a cute image and so beautifully coloured. I really love that belt die!
Hugs, Lisa

Kat W said...

This is wonderful; such a fun design with the buckle fact, all the die cutting looks great both for the layering and the cute details :-)
Talking of cute...that puppy fits the bill too, and your fab colouring makes him look beautifully furry :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx

This is just the cutest puppy, and great coloring. Just want to reach out, give 'im a pat on the head. Love the dies you've used and the dog paw was the perfect embellishment. Until I read the post, thought this was one of the 'flip-it' types of specialized die. Very creative arranging to form your pretty card. The colors are very nice together as well. TFS & Hugs

So sweet Lorraine! I love that puppy image, and your colouring is amazing on the fur, wow!! The copper accents work so well with your warm palette, especially adore the little pawprint! hugs :)

Hey Rainey! That dog image is such a cute choice! I LOve your palette of the golden brown, PINK & white - somehow I never would have thought of using pink! It SO works! Really like the oval frame, the layers and that belt and buckle is so cool! Fun challenge you created for yourself for the twist Rainey - well done!

Lorraine, this is paws-itively adorable! What a darling image and colored to perfection. The layer ing is so pretty and I love that sweet paw print atop the the doggie collar.. what a brilliant design. Thank you for the sweet inspiration, my friend. I am attempting another return to crafting and commenting... it seems I only manage one week before pain sets in too deeply. It is frustrating, but I am thankful to be visiting you today. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
