Canine Birthday Wishes

My husband's co-worker has a shih tzu dog that she adores.  She is celebrating a birthday this week so this image was perfect for her card.  I didn't have an appropriate stamp or digi so I went looking online.  I found this public domain image at wpclipart that was perfect, pre-colored AND it came with permission to use it freely.  I used the sketch from the Clear It Out Challenge blog but am too late to enter it in the challenge.  Shading around and under the dog was added with Copics.

The image and sentiment panels are popped up a little off the background. 

This card has a sentiment stamped as part of the interior decorating.  The finished card is 5.5" square.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Unknown (Pink, gray/brown)
Patterned Paper:  Prima
Stamps:  Inkadinkado (front), Stampendous (Birthday Wish)
Ink:  VersaFine (Onyx Black)
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders dies (Classic Squares Large and Small), Lacey Squares, Classic Ovals Small, Lacey Ovals), Fiskars border punch (Apron Lace), pearls (The Paper Studio), Copics (N0, 1, 3, W-1)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Sentimental Sunday Challenge #219 - Decorate inside and out
Papertake Weekly - Spots and Dots
Going Gray with Scrap Creations - Animals
Fan-tastic Tuesday Challenge #48 - Anything Goes
Dies R Us Challenge #7 - Birthday

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll come back tomorrow when I'll have a new Word Art Wednesday card to show you.
