Poodles and Bows

I have another 'kiss-stamping' attempt today - I think I need some larger bold stamps for this technique to work properly!

This is another CAS birthday card:
The green base card has an embossed border. I used an outline 'Happy Birthday' stamp in a dark green pretty colour ink across the centre of the card. I then added a sentiment verse underneath in a metallic ink (it is difficult to read in this picture unfortunately but does read 'when you care make it yourself'). I inked a bold flower stamp in the dark green pretty colour ink, and then inked a crackle effect stamp in the green metallic and kissed the two together before stamping the flower twice onto the cardstock. Finally a green bow was added above the sentiment.
This is being entered into:
Simon Says Monday B is for...Bows and Birthday
modsquad Flowers
polkadoodle Birthdays
creative moments 63 Spring Greens
creative card crew 82 Green
artistic inspirations #126 Greens
card mania #66 Spring

I have also just finished the fourth cross stitch of the year - a loving poodle:
This took 17 hours to complete!!! I now have to decide what to do with this little guy. But he definitely fits the following themes:
catch the bug Spring into Spring
country view #26 Anything Goes

Thanks for looking.
