Happy "Bark" day...

Awe so glad it is Friday!  It's been a very frustrating week for me at work, but so glad to see today come, so I can enjoy a 3 day weekend. So hard to believe that the kids go back to school on tuesday.  Where did the summer go? I love the fall for the cooler weather, but hate to see our long daylight days become shorter.
So onto today's card. 


As soon as I heard this weeks BellaRIFFIC friday theme was 'animal' I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I pulled out Spotty Ketto and stamped it on Bella's Bestest paper with Black Memento ink, and colored with my prismacolor pencils & gamsol. I cut it out using my square nesties, and then used the large square scallop die for the brown layer behind the image. 

I used Basic Grey Max & Whiskers 6x6 papers.  This line of papers worked very well with Spotty.  The large scallops on the yellow paper was punched with an EK Success border punch. I knew somewhere I had some 'doggy' twill tape that I wanted to add to the card, so I went digging into my huge, huge bucket of ribbon.  I don't have it all rolled around dowels yet, so it took me a while to find it, but I succeeded! (note to self - when nothing to do, clean up ribbon bucket!).  Now Spotty needed to have a sentiment on the front, so I decided to use Happy "Bark" Day which came from the Ketto's Dog Accessories set. It was too long, so stamped each word separately, so I could use as 3 words.  Finishing touches -  a bit of glitter on Spotty, and I used a black sakura glaze pen for his nose, eye and collar.
And there you have it. Isn't he cute?

The layout I used is a sketch from Taylored Expressions.

Have a wonderful long weekend everyone!
