Happy Birthday Mum

My Mum has owned and bred Golden Retrievers most of her life.  Sadly she is without a dog for the first time in her life now as she has become less mobile.  I am always very wary of cards, whether shop or home crafted with Goldens on, as she never holds back from criticising their conformation :).   So when I saw this digi image from Image-e-nation with only the head showing, I knew I'd found the right image for Mum's birthday card!

I used the sketch from Basic Grey, both the papers are Christmas ones though it's not a Christmas card.  The main piece is from Dasher and the circle is from Eskimo Kisses.  I've turned the sketch on its side, adding a couple of punched scrolls, some Prima flowers and a Craftwork cards sentiment.    The gold cardstock has a Martha Stewart lattice border to it.
I'm entering the following challenges:
Basic Grey - sketch
A Spoonful of Sugar - let's get punchy
Creative Card Crew - let's punch it
Incy Wincy - anything goes
