{MTSC85 & Curtain Call Act 41} WOOF!


Once again, I'm combining Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge.   Gotta love it when a plan comes together!  :)


I *love* BLUE... (ok, maybe not quite as much as green, but it's a close second!)...so this color combination really caught my eye!  I will admit that my card doesn't do it justice and the stamp I used was an odd choice.  But, you see, I really wanted to make this dog card for a special friend of mine who has a new puppy. 


You'll notice that I've flipped the sketch and used a rectangle instead of an oval for the image.  Such a rebel!  ;)  This card is 3-1/4" x 6-1/2" with Night of Navy cardstock as the base. 



 
The inside sentiment makes me *smile* . . . : )
