Dog House Thank You Card

Hello crafty friends! After taking a couple weeks off traveling to Texas, and spending time with family, I finally got a chance to make a card yay! I bought the cutest stamps from Jaded Blossom and just couldn't wait to color up this puppy! I wasn't sure what to make so I opened up Design Space and browsed some dog images and came upon this house from the Create A Critter cartridge....

I was inspired to make this shaped card for the cute pup from Jaded Blossom Puppy Dress Up stamps! I made the card base using Kraft card stock and cut it at 5.25" high. I embossed the doghouse with a Sizzix folder called Scallops and Lines. I used some patterned paper for the roof. I distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz Barn Door and Vintage Photo. 

 I cut the sign and stamped and embossed it with this adorable sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Kind Thanks set. I used burlap thread and a metal embellishment to hang it on the house. I'm still building my Copic collection and I used the following colors- Fur:E31, E50, E51, E55, E57, E59 Tongue: R12, R17  Paws and cheeks: R20 Tag: Y17. Finally I added a touch of gold metallic marker to the tag and white Gelly Roll pen for his cheeks. I wanted to keep this card gender neutral so I could give it to a guy or a girl. Hope you like it!

Thanks so much for hoppin by!!

I will participate in the following challenges:
Word Are Wednesday: Anything Goes
Little Scrap Pieces: Show it Off Saturday Linky Party
