Creatures - Happy Birthday

Hi di hi folks!
This is my second post for today!
If you're looking for my Thursday Just Inklined card, please scroll down!
The card I'm sharing my this time is my DT card for the current challenge
over at The Crafting Cafe, where this month's theme is
Here's what I came up with!

The image I have used is Love Pets, kindly supplied by our sponsor

My card wasn't meant to be a brithday card but somewhere along 
the line it turned in to one! lol
The DP I have used was a sheet I got in a crafty stash swap.
A few of us got together & sent each other a parcel of stash we
no longer wanted to play with! It was a whole lot of fun finding out what 
was in those parcels!
I added a little double sided border which was made with my 
 Martha Stewart Doily punch & I added a strip of the DP to it.
I added a fancy circle which was cut with a die from
who knows where then topped with a plain circle of DP.

Here's a closer look at the image

I coloured it up with promarkers & flexmarkers
Trimmed it down, added a mat of the base card & a little brad at each corner.
I'm trying to use up lot's of my stash so I can make room for more!

A few little sticky gems & an LOTV stamped & embossed
sentiment were the finishing touches!
I hope you like my card & I hope you can play along in our
Creatures challenge if you haven't already!
