Puppy Love

Hi crafty friends!  Today's card is inspired by two challenges- to use a sketch and to use an animal cut with the Cricut.  First, I decided to use a grey card base and all scraps of blue papers from my scraps bin to create the sketch background.  Then I looked through my Cricut handbooks for just the right animal.  A few months ago I bought the digital copy of Cricut Alphabet, and I love this cute dog, so I decided he was perfect.

I cut the shadow, the main image, and two copies of the shift image.  One of the shift image was cut in the same yellow as the dog so that I could layer the ears and add some yellow stickles.  The shift image was also cut on a piece of blue polka-dot paper for the collar.

The sentiment is from the Create a Valentine stamp set by My Craft Spot.  I recently won this stamp set and was so excited to try it out!  My Craft Spot stamps always stamp really well and I love the font of this stamp, which is one that is in a lot of the stamps I have from them.  I stamped it in a dark blue color.  I added the little wood veneer at the bottom for a finishing touch.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
