yorkie-in-a-birthday-box

I got a request to make a birthday card for a groomer. Last year I needed a Yorkie birthday card so I went looking through the internet. I found a cute Yorkie in a cup at Cute As A Button Designs but there was Holly on the cup for Christmas. So I wrote the designer for permission to have my husband take the Holly off so I could use it for a Birthday Card. She said better yet I’ll draw you a Birthday Yorkie!! Such a sweet artist. So I made the card (realized I forgot to post it so will do that shortly) for a lady in her 70’s and she loved it. So I decided to use that image again for the groomer. It is amazing how cards have different feel to it depending on the paper and design that is used. I went for a more vibrant feel on this card….it just happened because when I saw that balloon paper I thought it was cute with the image! I used sketch #5 from the Jan Card Sketch Challenge @ scrapbook.com. This is also for the Jan Inspirational Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com – Bonus – I need birthday cards to replenish my stock so I made 3 more of these to do just that!

I realized making a card this year with this image that I forgot to post this card last year when I made it April 2016. I needed a birthday card for a lady in her 70’s that liked Yorkies. I went searching the internet and found a cute Yorkie in a cup at Cute as a Button Designs. But the cup had Holly in it as it was a Christmas Image. I wrote the designer for permission to remove the Holly so I could make it a birthday card. She said she would make me a Birthday Yorkie and this is what she came up with!! Adorable!! So my husband colored in the dog and inside of the box and I paper pieced the rest.

I can’t remember the sketch but if I find it I will update it.
