A ruff day

My husband's oldest brother had back surgery and I wanted to send him a get well kind of card. I bought these stamps from Inkadinkado at AC Moore a week or so ago when they were 40% off. I love how each dog has a different pattern. The receiver of this card plays the drum in a Fife and Drum outfit-complete with a kilt-so I thought the scottie dog in his diamond plaid was appropriate. He's also very manly (YKWIM?!) so I really had to limit any fluff and keep it simple. Wait a minute, did I say he's manly and he wears a skirt? What was I thinking? Just kidding, he has the legs for it. Anyway, all the paper is from Papertrey, Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, and Dark Chocolate. I used nesties for the image and scallop mat. The brads and buckle are SU! Hodge Podge hardware and I tried to make it resemble a dog collar with the ribbon which is also from Papertrey.

The image is stamped in black and his tag sparkles from a Sakura stardust pen. The sentiment was stamped in Versa Magic Jumbo Java and I also used it to ink a bit around the edges. He's such a cutie! The dog that is. Nah, I love my BIL too!

I LOVE this card! I have this stamp set and love it! I posted a card not too long ago using the largest dog. It is the one I "altered" and made it look like my Giant Schnauzer. Your card is great! Best, Curt
