A dog-gone good Birthday

Hello everyone - just a quick post today as I am off early this morning. I have a very busy day ahead of me - thankfully my sore muscles are getting a bit better!! As most of you already may know - anytime I see a dog or dogs on a stamped image I have to have it and this stamp was no exception. My son's girlfriend and I were on a road trip to watch my son play hockey and on the way home we stopped at the local scrapbooking store. When I spotted this adorable Whipper Snapper stamp it was love at first sight. My thoughts changed somewhat once I stamped the image out and then looked at it and thought to myself - now I have to color the whole thing - it was actually a bit of a challenge since I am still trying to perfect my copic coloring skills. Once I finished the coloring everything took on a bit of a orange hue so instead of starting over (even though I felt like I should) I decided to just add orange to the background and give the whole card an orange kind of look! Once I added black to it I was happier - I liked the contrast. There is not much to this card other than the main image, a couple buttons, some black gingham ribbon, a SU sentiment and some white gel pen for highlights. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and hope your day will be wonderful and full of good things!! Oh I will not be listing the copics I used this time as I used so so many of them and didn't really keep track.

Bye for now
Your stamping friend, Debbie
