Dog-gone good birthday

How is it Wednesday already?  The week sure goes by quickly after a holiday weekend!  Today I had some time to get back into my craft room and whip up a little birthday card to add to my stash. 

I started with this stamp from SP & Company.  I stamped it on tan cardstock and colored in the nose with a bic marker and the eyes with a gel pen.  Then I stamped it again on white paper, colored in the flower with a marker, and then covered the flower with Turquoise stickles for a little sparkle.

The sentiment is from my very favorite Jaded Blossom set, "Puppy Love."  I bent the stamp just a little to make it fit onto my green smashbook flag.  Our Meijer had them on clearance for a dollar and I just couldn't resist!

I put the dog and the sentiment centered on a piece of paper from MME, rounded the edges, and then put that onto some black cardstock.  Clean, simple, and ready for our next birthday!

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
