Celebration Puppy -- Rediscovering Cottage Cutz

I had some spare time this afternoon, and my order from The Scrapping Cottage arrived, so I just had to play!  I discovered a 60% off sale going on, and took advantage, picking up quite a few things I "had" to have.  I quickly broke two of my favorites out of their packaging and made this card for a friend's upcoming birthday:

Oh my gosh!  That puppy with the leash makes me smile!  He is so like my dog, Winter, it is uncanny! 

The adorable puppy is Good Boy Puppy. The sentiment is also from The Scrapping Cottage. It is Celebrate.  I really like the script on this particular word die!  I certainly didn't need another word die, but I'm so glad I purchased it.  And yes, I DID need the Good Boy Puppy!  Life is much better with this die in my arsenal!

I made the background using a stencil, 2 different Spectrum Noir inks, and a fine liner pen.  I blended the inks together with the hexagonal stencil over 1/2 of the paper, then traced around the stencil with a pen.  I carefully removed the stencil and the tape that was holding it in place, and my background was ready.

The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge for the past 2 weeks theme has been "Walking the Dog".  I am finally able to enter that challenge with this card.   I will look for some more to enter it in, too:
