The One Layer Wednesday challenge at Styles Ink this week is to make a one layer card with a dog or cat. I have to thank my 6-year old daughter, who asked for a puppy party for her birthday on May 1. Otherwise I wouldn't have had a single dog or cat stamp.
I picked up a cute Inkadinkado set of dogs on clearance to use for her birthday invitations. This dog, and the one Jenny M used on her OLW card, are my two favorite dogs from the set. They're so cute!
I started by using brown ink on a kraft card base, and then switched it up by using a white card base and adding a couple more colors. I used a small butterfly from a Fiskars set and added a butterfly trail that I masked from a Studio G dollar stamp. Some grass from an AMuse set grounded the dog and a PTI sentiment finished it off. It's quite an eclectic mix of stamps, but I'm happy with the way it came together.
Since we're talking dogs, here are all the puppies (donated from my aunt's beanie baby collection) that my daughter's friends adopted at the birthday party. Each girl chose a puppy, filled out an adoption certificate, made a collar and tag, got a vet check, visited the puppy beauty salon, and picked out a dog bed (which I had made the week before) and dog dish. It was one of my favorite birthday parties we've had.
