It's a Dog's Life

Aren't dogs the best?  And this little puppy is so adorable I knew I had to use him for the Festive Friday Challenge #0014 and the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #396.

Card Base:  Whisper White Thick CS cut 4-1/4" x 11"; score at 5-1/2".  Rounded the corners of a piece of Tranquil Textures DSP (great patterns and colors) and attached it to Fresh Fig CS.  I wrapped a piece of Crumb Cake Nature's Twine around the layer twice and added it to the card front.

Image Layer:  Stamped the puppy  from the Bella and Friends stamp set on a piece of Whisper White Thick CS using Black Memento Ink.  I used light and dark Crumb Cake,
light and dark Mint Macaron and Bronze Blends to color the dog.  He was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies and matted with a piece of Fresh Fig CS cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Dimensionals were used to add him to the card.

The Finishing Touches:  Added multiple layers of Clear Wink of Stella to the heart on the puppy's collar.  For a little something extra, I added some Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins on the dsp.

I left the sentiment off the front but used the "thank you" sentiment from the same stamp set on the inside.

Well, that's it for today.  This challenge sketch is very versatile as well as clean and simple so why not spend a few crafty moments this weekend creating your own.  Enjoy your day; be safe and be blessed.
