Scottie dressed for Christmas

Hi everyone,
Hope all is well and that you are enjoying the snow.  March is definitely coming in like a lion.
We had some warm days the beginning of the week but now it's back to winter again....brrr.

Today starts a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where I am happy to be the host.  
I've chosen the theme "Stitching, Real or Faux".  
This is one of my favourite looks for a card.  I have no skills when it comes to sewing
 but have managed to get the hang of doing an almost straight line on my cards.  

I've coloured with Copics and paper pieced this little cutie from our wonderful sponsor, 


 He is called "Christmas Scottie with Bauble and can be found here.


The design paper is G45, gold foil from Michaels and my seam binding
ribbon is from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Gold Wink of Stella added to the baubles.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for being here today...hope you get a chance to stop by the blog and
see the wonderful inspiration from the DT.  We'd love to have you play along with us.
hugs,

Pat, your card is gorgeous. The gold and stitching are so elegant. You make the most awesome cards. Have a great weekend.

Oh Pat, what a super card! I love the way you've combined both real stitching and the stitched border of the square die. The design of the background paper is gorgeous and certainly the tartan adds to the "Scottie" look. Great work with the paper piecing, to carry that tartan onto the adorable pup. The embossed gold foil layer and that pretty bow finish up your masterpiece beautifully. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I had to come over and check out your 'Scottie Dog' when I saw it at our ATSM Challenge. I am a Scot and I love those dogs. You have coloured him beautifully. Love all the layers especially the tartan paper/piecing. Gorgeous scrunched ribbon. Thanks for sharing him with 'me' and at ATSM this week.

What a handsome Christmas card you've made, combinging the rich tartan, the black and gold and of course that super sweet Scottie. He's beautifully coloured and I love the way you put life into his fur with just the right amount of shading. The paper pieced vest is a wonderful way to draw in the stitched tartan in your background piece. Simply a fabulous card. Thanks so much for sharing at the Watercooler Wednesday All about Christmas Challenge this week.
