DT card for Crafter's Cafe Challenge #224 - ribbon and lace or Steampunk

The new challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is to use ribbon and lace, or, if you wish, create something with a Steampunk theme.  I chose this cute image from Sheepski Designs called Smile.  It seems to me that a somewhat feminine design suits this cutie very well!
This image is a digi in black and white.  I enhanced the outline using a moderately wet aqua pen along the ink lines.  The eyes and nose were done with black Twinkling H2O.  The Happy Birthday is embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and I used a Spellbinder Labels die to cut the background for the image.  The strips are all ribbon from my collection.  Like many of you, I could make a card with this format every day for years and have more than enough ribbon!  The horizontal strip is dark gold lace over black cs.

What a cute doggie image, seeing your card reminded me that I have that cuttlebug folder and rarely use it.

Thank you for sharing your card in our critter challenge over at Cut it Up!
