Happy dog

I created a birhday card for our granddaughter who will be turning 14 in a couple of days. Since they got a dachshund last year, I thought this was the perfect moment to finally ink up this sweet dachshund stamp by Lawn Fawn.

I used:
Cardstock - Pink cardstock by Simon Says Stamp (from a sampler pack)
Patterned paper - Crate paper 6x6 pad
Stamps - Critters at the dog park (Lawn Fawn), Happy family (Echo Park); It's only words (Ladybug Crafts Ink)
Inks - It's a girl (CP), Flamingo (Studio Calico) and Peppermint scrub (CP) for the banner; Versamark black for the sentiment; Memento rich cocoa for the dog image.
Colouring medium - Copics
Other - clear embossing powder (Hero Arts); Glossy accents (on the nose and for adhering the flat gold sequins from my stash); double-sided tape; foam tape; matching die for the dog; paper trimmer, pair of scissors; MISTI

I even remembered to dress up the envelope. Yay! I used Altenew crisp black ink (which is permanent and archival) to partially stamp the dog. The 'special delivery' message and the lettering stamps are from the Perfectly penned set by Concord and 9th.
