This Hello Gorgeous poodle makes me smile every time I see it!  I don’t know what it is about French looking poodles like on this card, but I have always found them to be so much fun.

While on a trip a few years ago in France, I found this chic and gorgeous poodle postcard wearing sunglasses and a diamond collar and I just had to send it to friends saying Fifi and I were having a fabulous time!  Maybe the nostalgia of that trip is what captures me.  Isn’t she just gorgeous and fun, too?

Gorgeous Poodle

So I couldn’t resist cutting out one of the poodles in the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper pack and putting her on a card.  I find her just adorable, too.

I layered her on a piece of Pool Party cardstock after it was put through the Big Shot machine using the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder, also one of my favorite embossing folders.  This embossing folder is just amazing in the way it works adding so much dimension and almost looks like ribbon.  It has more versatility than you might think, too.

I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set for the sentiment and accents and punched them out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I added a second layer in Real Red cardstock behind them (using 2 pieces) for an added pop of color really highlighting the red in her bow.

Maybe you could be sassy and make a poodle card, too!  I promise you’ll have a fun time playing with these products.

Thanx for stopping by and make all your projects A Crowning Creation!

Cheers!
