Biscuit's 11th Birthday

Hi all, it's my little Yorkie Biscuit's 11th Birthday today but i don't think he looks that old and he still acts like a puppy! I decided to upcycle a brown bag to put his b'day gifts in. I started by stamping all over the bag with my 'Edwin with Tin Tin the dog' stamp and then i mat and layered some embossed pieces of card and some DP. Stamped Edwin again for the topper and coloured with  Promarkers.
Diecut some Magnolia Doohickey flowers and added some roses from my stash.
Finished it all off with some pearls and a Magnolia Doohickey heart tag with gold ribbon and cream lace.
The word stamps are from Mark's Finest Papers.

And i couldn't resist taking some photo's of Biscuit wearing one of his gifts.
 Isn't he adorable!
