Boxer birthday card

Is it Thursday already?  This week seems to be flying by (not that I'm complaining!)  I really like the card I have to share today, so let's get to it.

Since the end of the year is looming and I'm trying to make a real effort to only make cards I'm really going to use, I decided to start using some of the challenges going on to get a head start on next year's family birthdays.  First up in January is the oldest of my husband's sisters, who has a boxer-bulldog mix that is her baby.  When I saw this file from SVG Cutting Files, I knew she would love it, so I bought it and I've been saving it for her birthday card. Luckily, none of my family members follow my blog, so I can go ahead and share it here and she'll still be surprised come January.

The papers are from a MME 6x6 pad that I picked up on sale at Michaels one time.  I like using pads, because you know your colors are going to coordinate.  I stamped the sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Puppy Love stamp set.  I also used that set for the inside sentiment (it says "in dog years, you're still a pup.")

So there it is.  One 2015 family birthday card down...8 million to go.  ;)

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
SVG Cutting Files- Birthday card
