MMSC39 Good Dog Card

Hi Everyone.....It feels good to be back again with my teammates at the MMSC.  I have missed working with them these last couple of weeks, but I am so pleased to be back with them again this week, and am thrilled to show you my card that was created with an image from our monthly sponsor this month:  Cornish Heritage Farms.  They have been so generous to us and have some really awesome stamps.  You will not know when to stop choosing when you stop by their shop.  Thank you Richard and Liz!!!  I am really enjoying working with your images!!   Don't miss their awesome giveaway....find out more at Priscilla's blog

Our MMSC39 weekly Bonus sponsor is.....

Faith of Designed2Delight .  She creates digital stamps with the card artist in mind. Her digi stamps (soon to be in red rubber) are hand drawn and truly unique! Please visit designed2delight.com to view her full range of stamps.  Stop by her store to see what works of art that you can't live without. 

I would like to take a moment to welcome our new guest designer diva this month:  Cheryl.  We look forward to working with her and hope you'll drop by her blog to see what she cooks up this month. 

~~~Now, onto my sample for this week~~~

This was such a fun image to work with, and I enjoyed embellishing this card with all the pawprints, dog bones, and chew ropes.  I also added a rhinestone collar, because he just seemed like the kind of dog that would wear one of those.  Doesn't he look like a good dog?  I had to add the chipboard words to his dog house to show what a good dog he is.  I also added just a touch of sparkle to him and lots of shine to his coat. 

I hope you enjoy my card this week and find some inspiration to create your own work of art for the challenge this week.  I look forward to visiting you, and please leave a comment to let me know that you dropped by and what you think.  Thank you for your time, and have a great day!

May many blessings come your way!
