A silver and not quite navy bauble card

Dreamboats and petticoats was a great night out on Wednesday. If you like the music of Roy Orbison and that era (ie. fairly early Roy) then you'll probably enjoy this show. The guy that played Bobby, the male lead, was quite a slight guy but what a voice!

We took Bess to the vets last night for the first shot of her vaccine. This is to desensitise her for her allergies to fleas, cats, dust mites and grass. She'll need a shot every two weeks to start, then extending to three and then four. The vet showed us how to inject her, so that in future we may be able to give her the vaccine at home. We'll go back for the next shot just so the vet can see that we do it right. Her allergy hasn't flared up for a good 6 weeks now (as the grass pollen isn't a problem at this time of year) but hopefully the vaccine will keep her rash free for quite some time even when the weather turns better in the Spring. Fingers crossed.

Anyhow, onto today's card:

Stamp sets: Tree Trimmings, Season of Joy
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
DSP: Ski Slope (retired)
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Versamark
Punches: Corner Rounder, Large Oval
Other: Stampin' Pastels, Silver EP, Earth Elements Brad, Silver Elastic Cord
Non-SU: Nestabilities

I cut the large oval aperture using my Nesties and punched the sentiment aperture with my large oval punch. The background card was sponged with Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy chalk. This bauble is popped up on a dimensional but you could leave it free swinging.

Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to enter for my blog candy.
