hugs & kisses

I've had this adorable image from Mo Manning, Bella and Bronte, for a while now and finally got the chance to ink it up.  It's such an adorable image!  It reminds me of my little girl.  I'm not sure why since we don't even have a dog!

I paired my image with some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite paper pad.  After coloring my image with copic markers, I die cut it with a circle nestability die and sponged some chalk ink around the edges while it was still in the die.  I added a sentiment to the bottom and stitched my layers.  I finished off my card with some beautiful roses.

Have a great week!
