Christmas Doggie Treats

Hi everyone.  Today's card is a reminder for this month's CAS Christmas challenge, hosted by Nance.

I don't have a lot of "people treat" stamps, but I did buy this stamp last year and made several cards with it.  I pulled it out again as it is perfect for the challenge.

This time I used a Christmas background to stamp in green.  Stamped the doggie with candy cane bone, watercoloured with distress inks, and fussy-cut.  I popped a white stitched frame over the background and placed the image popped up on top.  I didn't think it needed a sentiment.

I had a lot of fun making this card. :)

Super cute Christmas treat card, Loll! Love the script in the background and I agree that there's no need to add a sentiment. Alex' photo is wonderful. What a great moment he caught (Jessie and Violeta's facial expression) and I love the composition. Am I now starting to comment on his photo?
Anyway, they're going to be besties for sure.
