Work, Rest and Play

Hello lovely peeps.

Here's my first Lili Of The Valley Design Collective card for September.
I think this would be suitable for a man's birthday, or a 'First day at school' card for a young boy.

The main images are Odd Dog - Handwritten, Odd Dog - Sleepy Book and Odd Dog - Balloon, all coloured in with Graph'It markers

 8"x8" paper pads, also Lili of the Valley.

Panel 1

The wording is printed from my computer using the 'Impact Label' font (downloaded from
 I've also doodled borders around each topper with a black fine liner pen.

Panel 2

The embellishments were created with the same stamps but first I masked off parts of the image before inking. I filled in any missing bits with a fine liner pen.

Panel 3

The bone embellishments on this one are from Odd Dog - Sweet Dreams and I've covered up the heart balloon with a Sizzix Bigz balloon die-cut
