Birthday Pup

 hi guys,

I am so glad that summer is here at last - however I need to learn to remember to water my garden :O

It doesn't help that I am constantly working late either, so when I get home I just eat, do chores and fall into bed generally lol.

However, I did manage to make this little dog, that  stitched during my lunch breaks at work, into a little masculine birthday card.

I frayed the edges slightly on the cross stitch. I then blended a Distress Ink over the edges of the card to give the feeling that the pup is out and about in his woollen outfit. Finally I just added a Happy Birthday sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
