Happy Dog for a Happy Kid

     For the latest challenge at QKR Stampede this week, when our theme is "One for the Kids,"  I decided there was nothing better than a "Happy Dog (Digi 11303)" to make a great birthday card for a child.  The sentiment is done with Digi 18302 "Happy Birthday."

     Isn't that the happiest face ever?  Well, at least what you can see of it under that mop of hair.  :-D

     That Happy Dog is colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a die from my newest set ('Scallops' by Little B.)  I matted that with Ocean Blue CS and punched the corners to round them.  For the background, I chose dp from DCWV's Linen Closet stack.  It's embossed and glittered for a bit of shine and sparkle.  For the bow, I used sheer ribbon from The Ribbon Girl (sent to me as a gift by a blogging buddy in the UK.  Thank you!) and tied a double loop, double layer bow.

     As I was making this card, I thought about what a cute Valentine card it could make if I just colored the collar red and used a die with hearts or a cupid.  Wouldn't you feel loved if that happy pup was greeting you?  Hmmm, you may see this again soon in Valentine colors.  :-D
