70th Birthday card for Maureen

Boohoo Sunday evening already and back to the grindstone tomorrow after my week off.  Feels like I've been off for ages though ... lots done round the house, painted my kitchen and a few days out and about too.  Wee pic below of Rubydoo in the blossom at Mount Stewart (if you haven't been, the gardens are fabulous!)

This card uses one of the new stamps that I'd bought in Lili of the Valley's last sale.  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss added to his nose, and Wink of Stella to the roses.  My rose in the corner uses the Scribbles die from Die-namics ... I stuck it over a snippet of DP and then fussy cut it out.  If I was making this again I'd have my 'rose' the same colour as the ones the puppy has.
Silver peel off letters and pink bling from stash.  Sentiment / alpha set from Paper Smooches.  Embroidered rectangle also from Dienamics.
