I inked around the image with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and then layered it with brown and black cardstock. Behind the image is a vintage button card from Crafty Secrets Button Up set, which was also inked with Brushed Corduroy. The fun ticket is a freebie from Pixel Scrapper, also inked. The birthday sentiment is a wood-mounted rubber stamp from The Old Island Stamp Company, and the patterned papers are from MME Reunion 6x6 paper pad. The die cuts are Poppystamps Stitched Buttons, Poppystamps Walking Cat, and a snippet of MFT Medium Fancy Flourish. I added a crown charm to the dog's head and a few black gems.
