Miss You!

Here's a card I made for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #73. I've been wanting to piece together a little scene like this with my Beary Special Accessories for a while now and this layout was perfect. I had so much fun with the June 20th Key ingredients from my project yesterday that I used them again for today's card. 

Both the suitcase and cap are completely paper pieced. I wanted a little toy dog in my scene but the one from Beary Special was too large, so I used shrink plastic! I stamped the sweet pup with Black Stazon onto clear shrink plastic then I coloured the back side with two copics in brown shades. The shades became more intense once the image shrunk, but I'm ok with that. He actually reminds me of a stuffed pup I used to have called Peanuts! He went everywhere with me! LOL! The image panel is cut out with Labels One Nestabilities. 

I added texture to the lavender panel with the Flowers Impressabilities template, then I pierced around the edge. The rest of the card came together very quickly because it all coordinates. I finished the scallop edge with the rest of the white candy dots from my June 20th Key Ingredients. I'm going to have to re-order some of those because I love them so much!

Don't forget about the fabulous Moving Sale on now at Taylored Expressions. A number of products are discounted from 20-50%! 

Have a wonderful Sunday, and thanks for stopping by!
