WWC277 - Tristan's Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and Welcome!  This week we are making occasion cards at Watercooler Wednesday and Kath is our hostess.  I've chosen to make a birthday card for my daughter.  Kristen has the most adorable Corgi name Newton, and he was the inspiration for this card.
Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop background die
 A while back I saw this Corgi stamp and purchased it right away. I wanted to put together a little birthday scene so I thought a birthday cake on a bench would be cute.  I stamped, Copic colored, fussy cut and die cut the elements.  The background is a pretty cover die.   The sentiment is new to me, but I am really happy with it. I added some Tonic Nuvo glaze to the frosting and candles and I really like the shine it added.

I wanted to make the card extra special, so I put a second "pop-up" Corgi inside.
