Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #6 - Love of Pets

Hi Everyone!!

I'm excited to be sharing my very first Whimsy Inspiration Challenge card (well as a DT member anyway!)
Our Topic this week is "Love of Pets"!  So show us your cards with "Anything Pet Related - and a sentiment!"

I decided to use the adorable "In the Doghouse" by Crissy Armstrong, teamed with one of Ann Vento's Raindrop Echo Sentiment sets, "Animal Companions", both available  from Whimsy Stamps!  So much fun to colour! I used the Sketch Saturday Week #172 sketch, and some Basic Grey Max & Whiskers papers that I hadn't had a chance to use yet.

I double mounted the cute little puppy to give him more dimension and make his adorable cheeks stand out, and my hubby named him Lucky!
Hope you like him!

And so you can see the dimension...

So join us for this weeks Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #6 - "Love of Pets"!
