Celebrate Your Day
This card was created using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and Heart2Heart Challenges using Calyso Paperpak and Birthday Celebration at Between the Folds.
I picked out a stamp set I was going to use (CTMH Puppy Stamp set) so my next step was to go to Cricut Design Space for a doghouse. After experimenting with the puppy stamp I wasn't happy with it so I sought out another puppy stamp, colored and fussy-cut. The Calypso paperpak had a blue design paper for sky and a green for the grass, and another blue stripe for the doghouse.
Since I was babysitting for my Grand fur-babies (Jack and Riley) I was able to go through my daughter's stash of dies and pick out some items to complete the scenery....I went crazy.
The little homescape strip along the back of the doghouse was so cute and thought it could be my strip from the sketch. Added some foreground grass just for dimension. For the bow in the sketch I placed a doggie bone in a dish and wrapped a glitter ribbon around it in celebration of a Birthday. Dressed up the puppy with a glitter bow tie and added a cloud for the sentiment.
I chuckled as I looked at the card compared to the sketch and thought I went a little out of the box, but I was pleased with it anyway.
