The image used for this card is Trotsky by Dr. Digi House of Stamps.

I coloured this adorable Scottie dog with Copics and added the text digitally (before colouring).  The card base covering just had to be red tartan as in my mind the two go together perfectly.    I thought I would try and be a bit clever (which in my case is not the best idea hahaha) and add and inlay die border to balance the position of Trotsky on the card.  Quite happy with the die I had found and it fitted perfectly I set to die cutting, where my brain cell was I don't know, maybe gone for a coffee.  The die was a regular border die and not an inlay die haha, oh well, not the the end of the world, I just placed the now 2 sections back together again but had to hide the slight off cut on the outer edge with a couple of black glitter dots.  To finish off the card was a leap of joy from me hahahaha - I had forgotten I had this bit of red tartan ribbon and then to find it was the same tartan I had used for covering the card was just too much self control in containing my delight :) :) :)
