Man's best friend......

Here's a card I made as a bit of an indulgence...it isn't for anyone in particular......I just made it because I love the image and have been meaning to colour it in for ages! The dog looks a bit like my parents dog - Brion (yes he really is THAT big!!)......so Brion might just be gettig a birthday card some time!

This is a very CAS card because the image is quite large, but U have packed in a few embelishments in the form of the last of some lovely Polka dot brown ribbon (sob!!) and some lovely candy dots. The lovely creamy yellow paper is from one of my Polka doodles CDs, which I think goes lovely with the brown.
And here's a close up. I've been trying to get to grips with that lovely muted background that some of the talented artists out there manage to achieve. I am hoping that I have got it reasonably well this time, but will keep practicing!

There are lots of lovely challenges this week so here goes.....
