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’t 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 🙂 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.
