Bow WOW!


I got the idea for this punch art from SoShelli.com--isn't that puppy cute? I added the Houndstooth embossing folder texture to the face because I thought it made him look furry, and the word "hounds"tooth had nothing to do with it. lol I was so happy when I found the sentiment in my new set, Friendly Phrases. It works so perfectly with an added "bow."

This was my club swap for August--the theme was "animals." I don't usually do a lot of punch art, but I knew the hostess (and a few other club members) were dog lovers, and this card came together so quickly! You could change the look of the dog by changing cardstock colors. What's your favorite dog breed?
