Walking the dog

Went back to work today and didn't feel as good as I thought I did but I made it through and now I'm home in my lovely warm house. It's been a miserable day today, dark and gloomy and raining this afternoon. Time to post this card I made last night. This was a challenging sketch over at Crafts 4 eternity as there are so many elements to it but I love a good challenge with trying to fit it all on one card. There is also a recipe of checks and a dog so this fab digi image from Pollycraft was perfect. Hopefully you can see that one of the pink papers is checked. I decoupaged the dog, inked the edges of everything and added some pink shimmer chalk around the image. I've recently rediscovered my chalks and am loving them. There is a Birthday challenge at Crazy 4 challenges and The Pink Elephant. Simon Says want shabby chic and I thought the brown K&Co paper and the distressed sentiment from Craftwork cards fitted the bill. Lastly furry friends is the challenge atPaperplay.
