who doesn't love a Christmas puppy

With two Golden retrievers at home as you can imagine I'm a sucker for puppy stamps.  This set from Hero Arts is so cute with the puppy in a Christmas stocking.
I coloured him with a mix of pencils and Touch alcohol pens and then added a little Nuvo sparkle pen to the white on the stocking, it's impossible to photograph tonight 😊.  The pencil and pen has given the stocking a bit of velvety appearance with the mottled red. His stocking is held up with a small crystal  rhinestone.

I'm entering this card for the following challenges
Merry Monday red and white (with a touch of cream for the dog, I hope this is OK).
Sparkles Christmas feature a creature.



I hope you like this sweet little puppy.

  5. Getting sparkle to show on photos is a real pain, isn't it? But your card is absolutely adorable, with or without sparkle. Thank you for sharing at Sparkles Christmas
