Sketch & Stash Challenge #13

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well!
My card uses another of Becky's gorgeous sketches for this week's Sketch and Stash Challenge, there's an optional element of using an 'animal theme' for your stash too, so I hope you'll manage to join in.

As you all probably know, I'm currently having a rest from crafting and blogging, apart from the DT and family cards. Well, I've managed to use the challenge 13 sketch to make a birthday card for my best friend, Dot, so two birds with one stone for this one!
Dot recently had to have her beloved Otterhound, Jessie, put down. I'd never seen this breed before him (quite similar in size and appearance to an Old English sheepdog really) anyway, I thought this image would be nice for her card and I've coloured him in similar colours to Jessie (I think!). There's also another image inside the card which I've decoupaged but I forgot to scan it...duh!

Card Details:
* Images - Daisy and Dandelion set (from a RAK)
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Backing papers - K & Co
* Corners - Cuttlebug 'Vintage' die
* Flowers - EK Success 'Retro' punch
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Embossed zig zag'
* Card candy - Rak

It feels quite strange updating the blog now, I'm already getting out of the habbit, so I'll have to make sure that I'm not away for too long or I won't remember what to do LOL!
