Hi everyone!  I'm up late tonight.  I just couldn't get to sleep so I decided to make a card for today's ways to use it challenge on splitcoast stampers which was to create a card with a dog on it.  I also made this card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch found here.

I only have 2 dog stamp sets so I decided to use my D is for dog set since I have never used it before.  I love these challenges, it's a great way to make us ink up those unloved stamps, right?

I really didn't use any sort of fancy technique to make my card.  It was just a matter of stamping and cutting.  I stamped the dog image twice and one image I cut out and placed it over top (and just a hair to the right) of my first image.  I wanted to make the dog look like he was moving.   Then I stamped and cut out a bone, I added a few Rhinestone Jewels for the dog collar and I decided I needed some grass. 

To make the grass I used my word window punch and I punched some old olive card stock.  Then using my scissors I cut it to look like grass and then I even went a step further and I ran it through my paper crimper.  It looks pretty neat in person so I wanted to try and take a close up photo so you could see it better.
My sentiment is stamped and layered using my circle punches and underneath that I punched a chocolate chip layer using my designer label punch.  I placed my sentiment (using dimensionals) on top of the knot from where I tied my twine.

That's about it for my card today, I hope you liked it!  Thanks for taking the time to drop by!  Have a great day!  See you tomorrow!  I'm going to see if I can get some sleep now.
