Happy 50th birthday

A commissioned card for a 50th birthday for a nephew who has a black Labrador. The background paper was from PDA paper and card supplies with a couple of strips from my offcut box. The dog's head was made with an Anita stamp inked with Versafine onyx black, heat embossed with black detail powder and coloured with an alcohol pen. The Birthday sentiment was from Dovecraft and the Nephew square  and the 50th square were from Kanban.
