Select and arrange papers like the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 24. http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ Use Nestibilities ovals, scalloped and plain. Cut corner pieces out of McMahon Five Wood. http://www.mcmahonfivedesign.com/ Cuttlebug portions of background.
Print and cut out McMahon Five Digi Dalmation. Use black Stickles on Dalmation's spots and Diamond Stickles on bone. Black dew drop like beads and black silk flowers (first time to use Primas ever!!) This card is a little blingless for me, but I have a male friend who has a Dalmation and he wouldn't be too pleased with a lot of frou-frou girly stuff!! The flowers and bow are about all I could go with!! He also loves wood crafting and will love this wood. Hard for me to make "plain" cards for guys! But I think it turned out nice anyway!! The Stickles on the dog's spots and bone don't show much in the picture.

Very cute doggie and I do really see the stickles on the dog and bone. You are a good advertisement for Sue's wood paper. The more I see it on cards, the more I know I need it. :) I bet your friend will love this card!!

After reading what you wrote, sounds like this is the perfect card for your friend! What man doesn't love wood...and dogs? LOL! I hadn't noticed the black stickles on the spots but glad you mentioned it. I was able to see a little sparkle after you said that! Beautiful job and I was excited when I saw this card pop up on the post this morning! Thanks for making me smile today!!

Your friend will surely love this card Phyllis. It's so fun to make a card that fits the person who receives it! Wonderful job with this puppy, stickles and primas. I've recently come into a nice supply of Stickles and cannot believe I've gone all this time without them! What was I thinking! :) Michelle
