Puppy Love

Hi everyone.  I'm so happy with today's card ... it makes me smile. :)  I love the adorable images from Bugaboo ... and this is one of the seven free ones that I won recently.  I'm entering this into Bugaboo's January challenge - Anything Goes ... and SCS Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC411 - best of 2012), choose a past technique challenge from 2012.  I'm using the past challenge of TLC360 - Twine it up! ... include twine on your card.

As well, I thought this puppy and heart balloon were perfect for this week's Paper Players challenge (PP#127 - Love is in the air) ... and it literally is with the floating heart balloon :)  I even made my own designer paper!

Stamps:  Puppy Love - Balloon (Bugaboo); Word Salad (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); watercolor, Regal Rose polka-dot (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Staz-on Black; Stampin' Write markers:  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
Accessories & Tools:  blender pen, Pink Sorbet twine (The Twinery), adhesives, glue, and dimensionals

I created lines of 'XO' repeated on my computer and printed it onto Regal Rose polka-dot paper.  I used that for the strip at the bottom of the card front, inside strip and also printed the digital image (heart) onto it.

I printed the puppy onto watercolor paper and used SWM with blender pen to watercolor.  I cut him out and popped him up on the card front, attaching the end of the twine from the heart balloon to his tail.  So fun!!

Here's a close-up of the main image:
