HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #24

Good morning everyone;
Hope you are all having a great weekend so far. It's raining and dreary here....a good day to stay in and create!!

This is my card for the HHC #24. Ila has chosen this weeks challenge which is "Creative Borders".
I have been itching to use these stamps "Seymore's Sick Day" and "Tail not Waggin'". He is soooo adorable and I just love the sentiment.



For my creative borders I used my Martha Stewart punch and my spellbinders lables.
I embossed the image with black, twice and painted them with Tombows. I cut out the feet and head and shaped and layered them. I also added a little shaping to his tail. The toenails and spikes are painted with a Souffle pen. I stamped part of the sentiment..."a little dragon" and the dragon footprints with Stazon onto a piece of shrink film and shrunk em down....do you not just love the little footprints?? I thought they turned out sooo darn cute!! I stamped the footprints onto the tan background with Perfect Medium and glued it to a piece of dp from DCWV "Once Upon a Time stack. I also used some glossy accents on the thermometer and as a glue to hold the sentiment on the front.



I used the same paper on the inside from the DCWV stack. I also stamped the footprints, hearts and dots with Perfect Medium. I added a couple of little feet to the bow on the front, gluing them down with Glossy accents.

I hope you like it and have a great day!!
Thanks for stopping by....
