Puppy Love (PIO31)

This week, All Dressed Up is sponsoring our 
'Faux or Real Stitching' challenge over at the Pile It On Challenge Blog!

All Dressed Up is offering our winner TWO digital products! WOW!

Thank you so much, All Dresses Up!! 

Isn't this digi the cutest? Love it. :) I'm very fond of All Dressed Up in general but this pup gets me every time. This is a freebie over on All Dressed Up's challenge blog. They are so generous with their images!

I colored him up with my Prismacolors (the shading on my white areas look better than in these pictures). After I diecut my image, I added faux stitching around the edge. On my panel, I added real stitching. This was my first to do the real thing and I love the texture it gives my card. The mats are Stampin' Up's Real Red and the designer paper is from a Black and White paper pack I got from Hobby Lobby. I Glossy Accent-ed his nose and a couple random polka dots.

This is for a friend that just got a new puppy so I will add a gift card inside and my own little note. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
