Well, time flies! I've been trying to make a card for our QFTD09, hotwheels (aka Linda) since May! I chose her puppy love card. I flipped Linda's layout onto its side, skipped the ribbon (there are hearts in the bg) and used plain oval nesties instead of scalloped...
Around about the same time I saw this fantastic punch art puppy by Ellen Kemper, complete with instructions on her blog. Since our son and DIL have a mini Schnauzer I decided to modify Linda's card and make a 'just because' card to send to them.
I printed my background onto brochure paper using a digital kit I bought ages ago from Atomic Cupcake. The brochure paper gave it a wonderful finish.
Had fun with this. Hope they get a kick out of it.
The little red hearts in the bg are actually a perfect match to the Cherry Cobbler oval - I guess the different papers just photograph differently.
PT: 8 different punches

OMG, this is just too adorable. I need to make a couple of these for my sis and niece as they have schnauzers. You did a fab job and I love your digital background...just perfect. Going into my favorites. And, I see you got to RYPH on this one. LOL

Should it be cleverzi - no, that doesn't sound right. Keep on a stampin' girl. I'm lovin' it!! Hugs - Fruitflakezi
