Last October Papertrey Ink released a set Come All Ye Faithful that is dog related, since I was going through a hard time with my dog it was a no brainer for me to get this set. It is a set geared towards Christmas but I wanted a variety of cards to give to my Veterinarian as a thank you for all her help with Eddie. This card is one of them, I used a sentiment from this set that works well for a birthday card and added balloons and a cute bow tie. There is a matching set of dies that make paper piecing so easy (although I have to say that handling that little bitty tie was fun NOT). The reason the front of the card is shorter than the back is that I used the cut off piece for another card, then I added some DP to the inside and to the front. The tree is from the In The Meadow die set (Papertrey Ink) as is the "hill" in polka dots. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
