Sketch 265 Not So seriously, Hello Friend, Stampin UP, Lawn Fawn Critters at the dog park

 I think my absolute favorite challenges are the ones that have the  sketches.  When you come across a layout that you have not ever tried before, there is something exciting and "challenging" about it.   I especially like it when it turns out pretty awesome, when you thought it would be too difficult to do.   It just really makes a person think on how they will incorporate the stamps/inks/papers they will be using to match the sketch.  
Today I used three different stamp sets.  Lawn Fawn: Critters at the dog park, I used the bone and paw image to create the background paper.  It was already printed with swirls on it, but I enhanced it a bit more.  

Stampin Up:  Not so Seriously for the dogs and the sentiment on the front of the card.    I colored in the dogs, and then thought it needed something more, so I colored in some grass and sky to make it a glorious spring day.   The sentiment was a bit tricky, it is the long line kind, "You're Top Dog Today!"  So I had to bring out my lovely scotch tape to do a bit of taping of the words I didn't want to use and also to stack it, phew it only took 2x to get it to work in the little circle.   Now for the inside sentiment I used a stampin up set called Hello Friend.  I think it worked lovely to finish off the card. 
I also had the perfect opportunity to take a picture of this lovely cardinal, but he never turned around.  I love how the snowmobile shed next door gives it the perfect back drop of color.  haha.
I'm going to submit this card to the challenge at: 

I Also wanted to share a picture of HP.. He had his spring shave today.   All ready for summer now.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
