At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is The Bold and the Beautiful.We have the fabulous¬†2¬†Cute Ink¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

As soon as I saw this adorable Birthday Pug by 2 Cute Ink¬†I knew I had to play with him!My DD1 has a real thing for these little dogs since she saw then being dressed up in a series of ads on the TV a little while back so I thought I’d jump in and make a card for her birthday in October!!He’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Couldn’t resist glossing up his eyes and nose – and the camera has actually picked it up ūüôā The sentiment isn’t actually on the original image,it’s been stamped on.I chose a mix of colourful papers to go with him.An arch shaped die was used to cut and layer him up.I’ve ¬†used my favourite corner rounder punch on all the backing pieces.The rosette/flower thing is made up of punched,folded circles adhered to another punched circle.Some baker’s twine and a button have been added to finish.
