This card is for the Weekly Alphabet challenge Round 2. This week it was a surprise challenge as we anticipate the start of Round 3 in January 2012. The challenge was to use the letter that our SCS name begins with. For me the letter is D and D is for dog. I used the letter D with dog, double dog dishes, dog bone, and dog house. Also, I used a double notch corner punch and the two SU! colors that begin with D: Dusty Durango and Daffodil Delight. I dutifully report that I cased the layout from a SU! catalog, however, I cannot document which year. I had daringly cut the example out of an extra catalog. I desired samples of different techniques. On this card, I used the Out-of-the-box technique. For this method, I stamped the doghouse and dog on the same piece of cardstock and cut around the dog house, while trimming the layer. The dog dishes & bone are cut out and popped up with Dimensionals. In the water dish, I used a touch of Crystal Effects to make it look smooth. This thank you card will go to the dog kennel the next time our dog, Buddy goes there. Inside I will write: Thank you for letting Buddy stay at your house! Thanks for dropping by to see my D card and dare I say, thanks for the comment! Have a doggone great day!
