Lili of the Valley Challenge

What a lovey sunny morning it is here in Gozo ! Sunbathing weather ( Tho I don't do that !! I shadebathe :-))
Anyway on to this weeks Lili Of the Valley Challenge We are asked to make a card using the following gorgeous sketch :-)

Having just been to the UK I treated myself to a couple of Lili Of the Valley stamps so that I could make my GD cards using their stuff, only fair I thought !!
I chose this lovely 'Patch' which I bought online from the Glitter Pot isn't he gorgeous, I also bought a DCWV paper pad 'Pets' which I used for the circles on this card :-)The background flowers are a Whiff of Joy stamp. The paw print background is from Doodlebug I think !!

I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd him :-)
The paw print ribbon is from Meiflower, the sentiment is from the Clare Curd sentiment set and the frame is SU. The little bell under his chin is from papermania :-) I could do with some small dog tag charms ,,, need to go on a hunt ! Does anyone know where they might sell those ?? :-)

The Design team and fellow Guest Designer, Claire, have made some really gorgeous creations to give you inspiration so pop over to the challenge blog to see them :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
