Yappy birthday card

I haven't had much time to make any cards lately, it felt so good to get back into it!  I've spent most of my crafty time lately working on getting my December Daily album started- I'm so embarrassed of how messy my scrapping table is!

I decided to make a birthday card to go into my stash.  It's almost birthday season in our house.  It's an A2 card with patterned paper on top, then another layer of the cardstock, and a strip of the patterned paper along the bottom.

The dog is from Create a Critter 2, cut at 3 inches.  He's supposed to be a graduation dog, but instead I cut the birthday hat and noise maker that were from one of the other buttons.  I doodled over the swirl at the end of the noisemaker with a gel pen to make the pattern more prominent.  The collar is just a scrap that I cut out of the pink paper to fit the neck.  I stamped the sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps (Raining Cats and Dogs set) in dark purple, and added the three dark purple buttons on the side.
