Ruff Ruff Birthday

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch this week was a bit of a puzzler, but once I began working with it, it turned out pretty well!  Here's the sketch:

I needed a birthday card for my niece and she loves dogs, so I decided to make another wobbler card using the same image as I did on this card that I made a couple of weeks ago.  She's not a little girl, but who wouldn't love to get a wobbly little pup on your birthday card?  So here we go:

I used the colors of Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight from the Sunday Stamps challenge:

I stamped my little puppy in Stazon Black ink, then watercolored him in (don't look too closely, it wasn't too good of a watercolor job!), then used Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight DSPs in the background.  The lower panel was embossed with the Dotty Hearts embossing folder.

The "ruff ruff" is from the retired Happy Tails set, embossed in white and diecut with a small stitched heart die from Give It A Whirl to match the Dotty Hearts embossing!

And finally, on the inside, a birthday sentiment from Perennial Birthday and some hearts from Country Bouquet!

And it's off in the mail it goes, wagging its way to the Windy City of Chicago!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

So stinkin cute, LeAnne! I love the adorable doggy and the wonderful fun colors! And the added bonus of a wobbler! That is enough to make anyone smile! Hope the card has safe travels to Chicago!

I'm glad you didn't really have a ruff time making this...it's so cute!! Your niece will love it, I'm sure. I know I would. Wobble cards are so much fun. Blessings to you, my friend.

If Chicago had the same storm as we did last night, it will definitely be sent 'air mail' LeAnne!

It will be well loved, my friend - love these colors and everything else about it, too- especially that dash-line paper! Even your water coloring is perfect for this playful pup!
