Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Yorkshire Terrier" With CTMH New Dies

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  I hope you are finding time to create.  I have had another spell of headaches and migraines; so I wasn't able to color or create except on Saturday.  I am trying to get this posted today; so that I can enter Ching-Chou Kuik's challenge; which ends tomorrow.  

I created this card using this adorable Ching-Chou Kuik "Yorkshire Terrier" image.  I created this for my granddaughter, Lana, who just got a new puppy.  I tried to color it like her puppy; which is not a Yorkshire Terrier; but still some kind of terrier.  The image looks just like her puppy; and I did the best I could to get the colors similar to hers.  Also, she has light brown/blonde hair; so I tried to get that as close as I could as well.  LOL! 

I decided to delete the one with the yellow layer of words on front; because they made me dizzy.  LOL!

  1. Hello my friend. Sorry to hear you are struggling with headaches/migraines. I can fully understand how debilitating they are. What a gorgeous card. With the first card the words pop but you don't tend to see the butterflies whereas personally I can read the sentiments fine on the second card but the butterflies pop so I prefer the second one. Hope your granddaughter loves her new companion. Make sure you enter this card into the Facebook Challenge as well:


    Take care, Kym

  2. Very sweet card, Gloria! I hope you are feeling better soon!
    I prefer the card with the single sentiment layer. The yellow offset over the green does not work for me as well as it looks fuzzy. Maybe they need to be offset less or possibly have the yellow underneath - not sure.
    Thank you for sharing with us over here at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge and best of luck with your entry.
