A bucket full of puppy love

Here is my first official card as a DT member for Quixotic Inspirations!  I've been meaning to use this stamp by Chrissy Armstrong for Whimsey Stamps.  It's called Love In a Bucket (you can buy here) and my regular readers will know why I love it so much what with my two Yellow Labradors!  So here is the card....

 
 
 
As the sun is out and it feels fresh and bright (albeit very cold!), I wanted to create a card to reflect this too.  I used BasicGrey Marjolaine again and you can buy it here - it's so versatile.  I've created muted autumnal cards, sassy girlie cards and now this fresh look card with it - it's one of my all time DP favs!  I'm running low on it now but I must resist buying another paper pack as I have so many others to use up!!  (Sound familiar?!!)

That's it for me today!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


I am entering this card into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill white cardstock, Papermania grey cardstock, BasicGrey Marjolaine paper (you can buy here)
Stamps: Whimsey Stamps Love In a Bucket stamp (you can buy here), Pink Petticoat digi sentiment
Mediums: Copics and ProMarkers
Accents:Paperchase ribbon, buttons from stash
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, Nestabilities label die (inside card)
