Sweet Sunday 23

Here is my take on the latest Sweet Sunday sketch challenge. You might want to click on this to see the images close up.

I get a bit nervous when I see an unconventional sized card, but when I saw this sketch I couldn't help but see that it was perfect for the stamp set I just bought called "Its a dogs life" by Inkadinkadoo. I wanted to do a card for my brother and sister-in-law, who just got a new puppy. Animals have been a huge part of their family for some time now and they have always had a bunch of them at once...cats and dogs. We recently received an email with pictures of the latest addition so I thought I would fire off this card to them.

Here are the card details:

All of the paper is from my stash. I stamped, colored, embossed and punched out the image squares for the bottom of the card and then I mounted them on black paper and put the 3 dog pictures up on dimensionals. The two pictures with bones on them were mounted flat to the background. The Woof ribbon was part of my stash too. I printed the sentiment off of my computer, sponged the edges and punched it out with the SU word window punch, added a couple of black rhinestones to it then mounted it with dimensionals. Lastly, I pierced the paper on either side of the ribbon for accent.

Thanks for the great sketch Karen. My biggest problem will be finding an envelope to mail it in:))
