Smile!


Here's a happy card that's heading to cards for hospitalized kids. This is an Inky Antics image that I colored with Copics. I made a mosaic horizontal border with lots of little scraps from an autumn paper pad and some gold embossing powder. The kraft panel was done with a SB M-bossabilites "So Trendy" folder, while the sentiment was done with a SU! stamp and matching punch. I added some big gold brads, and a piece of paw-print ribbon for the finishing touches. The card base came from a paper pad I bought on QVC when they first began selling craft supplies eons ago! The cover is long gone, so I don't know who made it.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges...

Shopping our Stash #166 - A, B, C's - Animal, Brads, Circle

Tuesday Morning Sketch #264 - I took some liberties with the main image panel by staggering the layers

Tuesday Throwdown #210 - Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday - Use Stamping on your project

A perfect card to cheer up a sick child. The dorgie is delightfully fun, and I'm loving the texture of the scrappy piece behind Mr. D. Absolutely love the crazy quilt pattern on the lower border dp too. Great cheer up card for sure. TFS & Hugs
