Hello friends!  I'm back again today to share another card for the current challenge over at Digi Doodle Studios, which is PERFECT PETS & ANIMALS.  My card uses Tabitha's Puppy Hugs from the new release:

For the base of my card, I used a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Sketch #224

I thought this sketch was perfect to showcase this adorable girl hugging her sweet puppy!  I colored the image with alcohol markers to match the patterned papers, which come from the Trinity Stamps Summer Blooms kit from last year.  The green mat layers were created by ink blending the edges of white cardstock with Evergreen Bough oxide ink.  It was the closest ink I had that matched the leaf images in the flowered paper.  I used the long die from the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for June 2021 (Colorblock Circles & Stripes) to create the paper strips behind the image circle.  The sentiment was created by combining the "love" from Lawn Fawn's Baked with Love stamp set, and the ampersand and "hugs" from the Long Distance Hugs stamp set.  I used my MISTI to ensure a good stamping, and stamped in VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.  I covered the ink with clear embossing powder and heat set.
