Pastel Puppy

I love making kid's cards, which is just as well because I have to make quite a few.  This one is for a wee girl in Robbie's class at school who will be six soon.  Robbie asked me to make a card for Penny with a dog on it, apparently she's mad keen on them, so I used this adorable free digi from Sliekje, which has been coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are Papermania Tatty Teddy Spring Chic, I love the pretty, pastel shades of this paper stack and they're double sided to boot.  The letter stickers are also Papermania and have been blinged up with some Waterfall Stickles, what little girl doesn't love a bit of glitter!  The sentiment and number stickers are Papermania too, this time ready glittered.
Once again, I've used my Stampin' Up bunting punch, I find it the perfect way to add a child's name, and I've also used a Martha Stewart lacy border punch.
Ribbon, bow, gems, buttons, yep it's definitely mine!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
