Dogs, Ornaments and Flowers

I am a sucker for pretty much any stamp set with dogs or cats in it so as soon as I saw them I knew I HAD to have these adorable Christmas pooches from MFT.  I've been coloring them all in today and then I made this card for the ornament challenge at Merry Monday.  This little guy couldn't be more perfect for it!  I actually made a second card with slightly darker colours.  I keep going back and forth on which I like best.  What do you think?

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Poppy Parade, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Dog & ornament from Happy Pawlidays) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko
Die:  (Joy) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (R17, R22, Y17, G05, G14) Copic

Next up is a card for two challenges - The Colour Throwdown and The Flower Challenge.  The Flower Challenge is celebrating their one year anniversary and wants us to use our favourite flower.  I have an awful lot of flower stamps and there are a few that I turn to more than others including this Altenew bloom.  It's popped up on my blog a lot and I especially love it embossed in white on black cardstock.  Here I paired it with some old Basic Grey paper and some PTI flowers.  It came together quite quickly so I made some more in different colours.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Kioshi 12x12) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Flower from Hennah Elements) Altenew, (Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukeniko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Die:  (Leaves) Papertrey Ink, (Stitched rectangle) Mama Elephant
Gems:  Recollections

Love the flower cards, so beautiful and simple too (unless you are telling Porkies!!) I love it when you get to make a bunch of cards out of one idea. Cx
