Swap card & Paper Craft Crew card challenge #201 - a cute dog in emerald

I love all dog-related stamping items and in the current Stampin' Up catalog, there is an adorable dog stamp set called Bella & Friends.  So of course I had to use it for a stamp swap I am in...  It was hard to decide which of the dogs in this set I wanted to use!!  I am also going to post it in the Paper Craft Crew card challenge #201 which is now up:

 The new Stampin' Up in color 2016-2019 are in the current catalog and the Emerald Envy is gorgeous (love that name) which I used for my card...There are also matching accessories that I had to take advantage of--the emerald envy enamel shapes (the dog's collar), in color doilies (I used the reverse side of the green doily), designer series pack, and baker's twice.  These items are shown below and you can buy all of these products in my online store.

I also used one of the new designer series papers - Moroccan - Stampin' Up's designer papers are all reversible, which makes them really versatile.

Other supplies I used are early expresso and crumb cake ink, emerald envy marker, blender pen to color the dog, and the blossom bunch punch.  In hindsight, I should have used watercolor paper, as it is much better if you are going to do any watercoloring.  But when I made up my card, I wasn't sure how or if I would be coloring the dog!  Here are a few more pictures of the card:

I wonder who I will send this card to?
