and used pre- coloured dog and fox (how cute are they!)

I'm not too clever at CAS cards I like to jam pack mine as much as possible, however when flicking through a magazine the other week I noticed one that I really liked , I put my own spin on it and this is what I came up with

I cut out the flowers and banner on my portrait.
The flowered paper and sentiment are from the Twiggy and Toots collection



I then layered it onto a 6x6 card blank using thick foam tape

 Both papers used are from the collection but I just adore the one with squares and faux stitching  on , it comes in a variety of different colours too. I coloured up Luna using Graph'It Markers ,

 cut out some extra squares and punched some flowers, and pearls and gems to finish.
