Love, polka dots, hearts and spotty dogs

So I think this card covers all my loves including the colour combo red, white and black.

I used my favourite spotty dog stamp from the Cosmo pups set and the Night and Day papers from Stampin Up. The tag and heart punch are also from Stampin Up and the sheer red polka dot ribbon is from Fantastic Ribbons. You may have noticed that tying ribbons into beautiful bows is not my strong point! I've seen some beautiful bows on cards but I can never seem to make mine as good.

Yesterday I went into town with my friend and we saw the most gorgeous little puppy. A boy was holding it while waiting for his dad. I couldn't resist asking if I could take a photo. Luckily for the boy his father soon arrived and rescued him before I ended up taking a 100 photos. Anyway the little puppy was called Lilly and had one tiny dear little spot on her nose. Think she was the inspiration for my card today and look, it's the red, white and black colour combo again, how appropriate (apart from the lead!) :)

Have a Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by ...

Oh, Liz! What would Miaowski say about 100 doggie photos? LOL! Love your card, by the way--and I can see your inspiration!
