Man's best friend

   This week the Creative Corner challenge is asking you to use your favourite layout. I don't often make cards with a lot of embellishments because they have to be posted and I try to keep that cost down, so instead I use layers and different papers.
   Here I used paper printed using the Paws For Thought CD ROM from Cupcakecrafting and matted and layered it onto blue mirri and white card. I created the spotty paper using the My Craft Studio program and matted this onto blue mirri before attaching it to the card.
   The image called Man's best friend is from a Lili of the Valley stamp and I coloured it using Promarkers. It was then cut out using a Spellbinders die and matted onto blue mirri card cut out using a Spellbinders scalloped circle die. The peel off sentiment was placed on a circle of black mirri card which was matted onto a scalloped circle of blue mirri card. Both were cut out using Spellbinders dies.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Penny Black and More - anything goes
   Dream Valley - anything goes
   The Crazy Challenge - favourite techniques (using markers)
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - 2 or more paper designs
   The Paper Shelter - a card for a child
   Fab 'n' Funky - happy birthday
   Addicted to Stamps and More - make your mark
   Fantastic Tuesday - anything goes with the twist masculine
   Scribble & Scrap - anything goes
   Sweet Stampin' - to die for
