Doggone It, I'm Thrilled!

I finally ordered a stamp set from Our Craft Lounge and I could kick myself for not doing it sooner. My new set, Pat the Bad Dog, is ADORABLE and so much fun to color. I love crisp, clean lines with plenty of defined areas to color and all of the sets from OCL fit the bill. I can't wait to order lots more. I chose one of the clear, polymer sets but they sell rubber stamps as well. I couldn't be happier with the quality of their products. Well done!

So for my card, I used my Bad Dog set and stamped it on another fav of mine, Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock. I colored with my Copics, of course. Aren't I predictable? Since the image panel was on the large side, I kept the front of the card simple. The inside of the card contains the remainder of my sentiment and a little further embellishment. This card was intended to be my entry for the OCC Limited Supplies Challenge this week but I ended up with too many layers. Oh well. There is always next week, right? So, take a look! The second photo is of the inside of the card.

I am sorry that my photos are a little dark. It was overcast outside when I took these and now I see my images are a little dim. This time of year makes it very difficult for me to get good card pictures. My house lacks a good spot for lighting my projects and I count on going outside for my photo shoots. If the weather or lighting isn't up to par outside, I am in trouble! I will try to reshoot these when my light is better. This card is a bright, cheery little greeting and the shadows make it look a little dreary.

I mentioned a few of my supplies above but the rest are below. I will be listing this card in my Etsy shop very soon if you are interested in buying it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by!
