DT inspiration post.

Hi Cazzy here!
I added this card to the main challenge post yesterday, but in case anyone missed it I thought I would post it again. The image is Ferald Sleepwalking from Squigglefly, so cute. The background is described in great detail on my blog, and slightly below, but it is my first attempt with the Gelli Plate.

Boxer by Enid Barnes is also from Squigglefly. I love Boxer dogs, they look so fierce but are daft dogs that melt and roll over when you speak to them! I was going to try another new technique but I had some of the Gelli Plate background left and decided it would be better to use that, and quicker! I made a square card, the square behind the dog on the card is a part of my ghost print (see my blog for details). The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.

The card, you can see the gorgeous Boxer dog better.

Found some doggy card to line the inside, adn cut a panel of kraft paper to write on.

When I looked at the offcuts I just had to make them into a tag bookmark, this can be used as a tag then a bookmark afterwards.

Lined inside to match the card.

The tag/bookmark is also free standing, it could be used as a card in it's own right. The dogs are slightly different colours, I might have to rectify that!
