Birthday Yay!

Hello friends, and welcome back!  The card I'm sharing is one I made for a long time friend of mine.  He lost his old doxy boy back in November but now has a very sweet new rescue pooch that is a doxy mix, so I knew he'd enjoy the card. 

I've used the sketch from the current Fusion challenge and am also joining Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge of "Birthday", the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and Seize the Birthday, although my card might also capture the STB toppings theme of "Make Us Laugh" just because the pup is so darn cute!

I used one of my favorite Crazy Dogs images from Tim Holtz to make this birthday card.  I stamped and Copic Colored this cute pooch and a birthday present from Crazy Things, and die cut them with matching dies.  I ink blended a background with Distress Inks, die cut it and adhered it to a white card base, then popped up the dog and present with foam tape.

For the horizontal piece I layered a strip of patterned paper on a slightly smaller piece of card stock to give it stability, popped it up with foam tape, then added the stamped sentiment rectangle.

Thanks for visiting, it's always appreciated!  I've added links to all the challenges above so you can check them out.  Enjoy the remainder of your weekend!
