Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #283

We have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge, Leanne is our hostess and her challenge is to Add a puppy to your Christmas card.

I used a scrap of DP for the plaid layer, I used a panel of embossed cardstock for the paw impressions and then added layers to both the sentiment and the pop before popping them up with foam tape. I added some highlight to the pup with watercolours.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer paper-Carta Bella, Magenta - Dogs, Verve Merry & Bright, misc embossing folder.

Come play along with the challenge, stop by the Merry Monday blog to take a look at all the great inspiration created by the rest of the Merry Makers.

Thanks for visiting,

    I'd not have thought to put a dog on a Christmas card like that - but it totally is a sweet idea! The embossed backdrop is wonderful.
