I love Dogs!

O.K, this title is not actually true but I thought it suited my card (sorry all you dog lovers out there!).

This card is for a 2 year old girl who loves dogs but I was instructed that it was not to be girly and pink was a no no!

This is based on the challenge sketch this week at Paper Smooches Sparks and I have used my brand new 'Woofers and Tweeters' Paper Smooches stamp set.

I was inspired by Karen's use of the bone as a ribbon on her Cuteasaurus card here and thought it would work on my dog (so thank you Karen!).

This card took me ages to make. I couldn't decide on colours, stamps, sentiment etc.

Eventually I got the colours and decided to stamp my own back panel using the paw stamp. I had fun doing this so then went a bit crazy and decided to stamp bones also. As I got ready to put the card together I decided the stamp I originally used looked more like a cat and hubby back to the drawing board! I re-did the card using the above stamp!
I really find using patterned paper a challenge and at the end of making this card I had to laugh or it would have been tears!

Here is the sketch I based my card on:

I am also going to enter this into the 'Child's Play' challenge at The Stamping Shack-a new challenge site worth a peek.

Enjoy your Saturday x
