Doggie in the window

   My grand-daughters have expressed a wish for a dog so I have made a birthday card for the eldest which was inspired by the song that was often sung at home when I was young - 'How much is that doggie in the window?'. I believe it was sung by Patti Page. Conveniently there was a digi freebie on Ike's World challenge called 'Kristy's Pet 2'.
   I coloured the above mentioned image using Promarkers and distress ink. The window was created by using a window stamp from Little Claire's Designs on acetate that I salvaged from packaging. This was perhaps a little thick as I had difficulty in scoring it so that I could open the windows and also in cutting it. The frame was stamped with the same stamp and was coloured using Promarkers. I then cut out the window pane part, replacing it with the acetate.
   The border around the card is white peel off which I coloured using permanent markers.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Ike's World - song or film title (How much is that doggie in the window?)
   Crafty Catz - inspired by a song (How much is that doggie in the window?)
   Hobby Cutz - no designer paper
   Scrapbook Stamp Society - anything goes + optional colours beige and blue
   Love to Create - happy birthday
   Stampin With The Dragon - clean and simple
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Stamping Sensations - animal antics
   Paper Pretties - hip to be square
   I Love Promarkers - digi does it!
