Dreams Live Here - Double Trouble Challenge "Dog Days of Summer"

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #63 "Dog Days of Summer" to include dry or heat embossing.  Twisted Sister also has an optional twist to include a dog or your favorite critter... and if you have included a "critter" you can enter your project in 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.   

Doing some organization in my Craft Room I pulled out a container with many of my Copic Coloring Class stamp images that were either partially or fully colored but never completed as a card.  So I pulled this Whimsy "lazy cat" for the optional twist just needed to complete the coloring of the upper tree leaves and butterfly and assemble a card... so this made it a quick card to put together. 

The paper selected already had a great sentiment on it which was perfect for lazy cat.  I used a Versamark pen to heat emboss the sentiment in princess gold, and also heat embossed a fishbowl as an embellishment for the right-hand corner of the card to balance the layout.

I love the cat, Sue! He reminds me of your son's cat, Thurman. Pretty card with excellent details and the perfect background paper.

I love that you used the paper from Blue Skies with the sentiment already there - the critter is adorable sleeping on the branch :)
