LOTV Party Pup - Christmas Card

Hello again!

I had some time this weekend to break out some of my stamps that have just been begging to be inked up and one of the cuties I picked up was this puppy called Party Pup - Christmas Card from Lili of the Valley. I just love LOTV stamps!  They are so adorable and I think this puppy can be used for more than just Christmas Cards.  Actually, I'll probably be using this card as a birthday card for a guy.  I know, there's flowers, but I think the colors kind of make it a little bit more manly and the flowers are okay, right? 

The image was colored using my Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush.  I used papers from the BasicGrey Max and Whiskers 6x6 Paper Pad which go perfectly with this image.  I used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps and punched it out using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags die cut.  I used sheer organza ribbon and threaded it through the tag.  I really don't get to use these tags enough, which is a shame because they're great!  The flowers are from WOC and so are the leaves.
