Shabby chic puppy!

Hello everyone :o)

Today's card is for an order, although I have a horrible feeling it's going to turn out to be a bit of a controversial card!

One of Pav's workmates asked for this one for his girlfriend... she likes shabby chic style and he wanted a labrador puppy on it.  Shabby chic is about as far from my natural style as it's possible to get but I've had a good go!  Anyway... I asked Pav if they've got a labrador... he said no, but she really wants one... so I just assumed it was going to be a lovely surprise for her that they were getting one.  Ahh!  Today I was asking Pav about it, and apparently there are no plans to get a puppy... ermm, I'm thinking this card might not go down very well!

The labrador is from an old Joanna Sheen CD, papers are LOTV and the bow dies are Memory Box.

Thanks for popping in, hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

It's a gorgeous card, but I know what you mean about it being a bit controversial. It's lovely and I'm sure she'll love it (and will be annoyed with her BF for not getting the real thing!)

Well, he asked for a puppy image and he got one. It might give her expectations, it might not. Whatever the case you did a wonderful shabby chic style card. Very different from your usual style, but you nailed it!
