Crazy Dogs

I have a birthday card for a little boy to share today...featuring some of Tim Holtz's 'Crazy Dogs'. I coloured the dogs using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut them out. I used snippets of spotty papers (from the 'Awesome Boy' pad by Recollections/Michaels), placing a different colour in each corner of my card blank. I cut some apertures in a piece of kraft card using one of my circle Nesties for the dogs to peek through, and stamped a sentiment (from a set by Lili of the Valley) in the centre. I trimmed the dogs down, then added them using 3D foam pads, and a number sentiment in the final 'window' made using Nesties & my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.
