~ Deadline for challenge will be on April 4 at midnight PST!

Here is a picture of what I came up with for the challenge.

I made this card for my Sister who has had some bad luck and broke her wrist and that is why the cast is on the puppies right arm.  The troubles for her continue as she will be having surgery on her wrist also next week.  I thought the little puppy would help cheer her up as she loves dogs.

I started my card with a stencil background of hearts that were from a stencil I made using the small hearts from Seasonal Greetings.  I inked it up darker to lighter.  I used a tag cut from Tag Dies using PTI Hawaiian Shores even though it looks green in the picture.  I will list the products I used at the end of this post.  I cute the puppy and cut the right leg in white for the cast.  I cute the dog house and stamped the wood.  I then cut a rectangle from scraps and circle to follow the sketch.  I used many stamps for the circle and inside.  I tied a bow using chocolate bakers twine before adding the sentiment circle and house.  I hope my Sister gets a laugh from her card.
