And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Puppy Love

Hello friends!  I have just a quick card to share with you today which came together quickly as a result of combining two challenges.  On Friday, Jeanne, on Splitcoaststampers asked us to take a break from Christmas and make a holiday card…but not a Christmas one.  Right away I thought of Valentine's Day so out came Valentine Critters, the Sweet Perks Club Bundle on sale right now by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Then I saw the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, and got the idea to turn it into a shaker card.

Creative Nugget:  A few splatters from Grunge Elements and acrylic paint made a super quick and easy background for this card.  A heart embossed panel and seed beads were used for the inside of the shaker.  The adorable pup from Valentine Critters was colored with Copic Markers and popped onto the acetate.  Finally, the sentiment was make and stamped in one line rather than two to fit the hand cut banner.  I paws-itively love how this card turned out and hope you do, too!

The following stamp sets from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store were used:

This card is entered in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by…have a wonderfully blessed day!
