Ladies Birthday

This card is for a lady who loves Abba, dogs and flowers! I wanted to show all her favs, I just hope it does this??

I used light purple card stock and Smirk Naughty and Nice papers. I've also used mirror card and scraps of sparkle white paper to layer. PM flower embelishments, gems, peel-offs, retro clothes stickers and some dog style card toppers finish this box off. I also used the Xcut corner punch and nearly all the edges for a smoother effect!

Thought the boots were very ABBA MANIA!
Thanks for looking
