It's a Dog's Life
This card was made for my FIL's birthday and I picked the image specially from Digistamp Boutique, as it reminded me very much of their family dog, Marty.
Like my own family's much loved dog, Marty was unfortunate enough to spend some time in a dog home in his earlier life. Luckily he was adopted by my In Laws and his life changed from that of a Pauper to a Prince overnight. He is a lovely dog, but, as result of his experiences in life, he craves security and when he first arrived, he would always have to be touching a human.....I think it was a comfort thing. Quite often, if you sat down, he would sit on your feet and that's why I thought this image was so perfect.
For this card, I started with some paper from one of my CD's - it was left over from a previous card, so unfortunately I can't remember where it came from :o(
I created some faux ribbon with Bazill card and also used it as a base for my nestie matting.
The image has been printed 3 times and decoupaged, and finally I created some faux ribbon with my card stock.
I hope that you like my card for today. Here are the challenges that I would like to enter:
