This gorgeous Golden Retriever was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I made this card for a friend whose Golden, named Siri, is getting a little "grey" so added more white highlights than normal… especially on her muzzle. I love the look of this pretty background paper with Siri's golden coat. The sentiment is also from the digi set.

I made a gift bag by positioning four images of the Golden Retriever on a sheet of tan parchment copy paper. [I used a tutorial I found HERE to fold the bag. First, I used a blank sheet of white copy paper to wrap a few books until I determined the correct size and thickness that would work with the copy paper. Once I had figured that out, I sized and positioned the pup image, flipping the image to create a bit more interest on the front and back of the gift bag before printing it on tan parchment. I added just a bit of color with Spectrum Noir markers and chalks before using the tutorial and a bit of transparent tape to create the gift bag.] I made the gift tag with scraps, using a heart punch and small circle die to create the paw print. The final touches were to add patterned ribbon and one cute puffy heart sticker. So fun. AM entering this card into several challenges including Simon Says Monday Challenge, Transport It [because this gift bag was used to transport a gift of handmade cards to a dear friend.]

Here is another card created with one of my beautiful PSX stamps that fill an entire card front. This one features a yummy pear with filigree borders, some lettering, and one cute little bee. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen before adding a cute little bee from All Night Media. I colored and fussy cut the little bee before attaching it to one of the pears with a foam adhesive dot. A layer of pale green gingham paper and dark green mulberry paper provided the perfect addition of texture, pattern, and color to my card.
