Dog Days of Going Back to School

I made this card for the StampinB's Challenge #70 to use a dog, as well as the Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown to use designer paper from our stash. I recently d/l this adorable digi image but the artist didn't add her name to the title, so I don't know who made it. If any of you know the artist, please let me know so I can edit this post and give proper credit. All of the DP is by Imaginisce, and it's from a set of back-to-school papers and embellishments. The scissors, glue bottle and pencil were all cut from a piece of the DP in the pack. The "abc's" is a rubon, the brad and ribbon were also from the same designer pack. I added a Geo sparkler for the dog's tag and doodled around the edge with a SU real red marker. The little notebook paper was distressed with Ranger antique linen ink and punched with the SU! spiral punch. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see the penmanship in the dark red DP. I'd love it if my printer accepted water color paper so I could blend the colors better on this doggie! I really didn't do this cute image much justice.
Have a great Thursday and stay cool if you can :)

This is truly adorable, Carol. I'm with you wishing that the digi designer would add their name to the file. I have a whole folder full of unknowns. That pup, really is a sweet image.
