More Challenges... the fun kind!

I've been finding sketch challenges lately that really intrigue me!  This card is a sketch challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches #39!  It also qualifies for the Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog, the challenge is to do one of our favorite challenges.  I really like sketch challenges but I missed doing their 4 Legged Friends theme challenge and this pup is too cute not to use.  

This cute pup is a digital image from Bug A Boo Designs, I colored it with Copic markers.  The papers I used are PTI Spring Rain & Dark Chocolate, SU Creamy Carmel, Basic Black and Neenah Solar White.  The Dark Chocolate Panel has been run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I added a strip of Dark Chocolate Ric Rac to the Creamy Carmel panel, it's a new die from Papertrey Ink.  Wishing You The Best is from the SU Riveting set and the dog paw print is from SU Canine Capers - a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!  I added 3 Cowboy colored Dew Drops after touching them up slightly with my Copic E27 marker.
...and here's what the inside looks like.  I couldn't resist this pup either!  One more little strip of ric rak and the birthday stamp and it was finished!
