OSAAT #206 - Anything Goes

Here is my card for this week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time - everyone's favourite theme 'Anything Goes'. It was Jeanette's turn to choose an image for four of the DT to use and she chose Craftygirl's 'Puppy' which you can buy at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. 

I rarely make easel cards but this is the second one in a row for me. This puppy cried out for standing proud and so after colouring with my Promarkers and fixing to some card I carefully cut round him. I've used a small Craft UK square card blank which I scored to make the easel. I then used a piece of patterned paper behind the puppy and it was already in my printed papers so I can't for the life of me remember which CD it's on. I put a green Card Candi in each corner and a small white foam bone - I've had these foam shapes for about ten years, at least! I bought them from Create and Craft. The base is embossed with a Darice paw print folder which had been coloured with two brown Distress Inks. The woof is also a foam shape.

Please check out the OSAAT blog for details of the prizes on offer this week.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - Animals

Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

  4. Oh yes Hazel, such a cute puppy really does deserve to stand proud and I love this easel card. The embossed and inked base is so effective and puts me in mind of a dog blanket ...or a mat to catch the muddy paw prints that puppies are wont to bring indoors.

    Is it any wonder that crafters have a reputation for 'hoarding' .... Your 10 year old card candy is perfect and just goes to show that the 'one day' certainly arrived when you created this beautiful card.

    Sending you lots of love and special thoughts on this sad day. xxx

    Love Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥
