Doggone Cute

I have a fun card to share I made for
I think it is such a 'HAPPY" face on that cute doggie
that it would make a great 'happy birthday' card.

This card is a rather large one, being 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 square.
But I had to fit the dog on and the dog house as well.

I layered white card stock and a SU red piece on that
and then 'let the fun' begin!

This month all the designers were to work with chipboard
from Want 2 Scrap on our projects as well as our

I choose the 'dog house' chipboard 
first tracing it onto a scrap piece of designer paper,
then stamping with a stamp I love from Donna's Stylin Sayings.
I love how it gives a worn appearance to the dog house.

Next I added strips of 1/4" double sided Terrific Tape along each
side of the roof, then sprinkled Enlightened Blue glitter on.
I added a few Want 2 Scrap paw print bling to the house.

The dog is from stamp set Hearts Like Dogs,
he was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.

I used Want 2 Scrap clouds, adding brushable glue to each
then sprinkling with Sparkle N Soft Twinkling Clouds...
it gives off a nice 'fluffy' cloud appearance.

To finish I added a snippet of a bow to the dog and a 
die cut grass border.

Stop back by here at 9pm on the 30th to see the "May Reveal"...

Okay, well you know I love the dog. So adorable and lovable. I just want to hug him. So cute with the dog house and red flowered paper. Love that idea for a background. Your clouds are awesome with their puffiness. One of these days I'll use my cloud dies and maybe I'll try this. I sit here looking and getting inspired and then I have no time to stamp. Sheesh!
