Wanna Play?

     EDITED TO ADD:  Having been gone all week and with only the most unreliable access to the internet, this is the first time I've been able to connect and correct two pre-scheduled posts which didn't go live as scheduled.  So today, you get to see two posts!  :-D

     I adore this image by Anne Fenton which came to us as the image for the July Progressive Challenge at The Outlawz.  Isn't he just the most adorable thing?  He's waiting for someone to come play on the beach with him (which is where I am right now while you're reading this!)

     I used chalks to color the dog and ProMarkers to highlight his fur and color both the beach ball and the sand.  I cut the image with a die from CUT-plorations and also cut the embossed blue background piece with another die from that same set.  After cutting it, I used my Swiss Dot embossing folder on it.

     I layered those two pieces together and wrapped them with red, white, and blue baker's twine, tying it into a bow around all three strands.  I thought this made a great masculine card so I left it without any further embellishment.
