SCSC #69 Tones of One Colour Plus White

Hi everyone, its Saturday so that must mean its time for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.  I have been soo looking forward to posting this card!!  It's set by my lovely teamie Cathy who wants to see monochrome - tones of one colour plus white.  I LOVED this challenge and opted for browns with white.  I'm really chuffed with the end result.  I've used one of my new stamps and had a friend in mind who, like me, LOVES cocker spaniels.  She hasn't been well lately, though has just acquired a new puppy....... who is running amok lol!  I couldn't resist placing some little paws trampling in the flowers.

 

I have added glamour dust to the flowers and some little clear stick pearls (from stash) onto his collar for a bit of added bling.
