CCEE 1439 national dog week

To finish up Lois's month of playing hostess on CCEE Stampers, we're going to celebrate National Dog Week by including a dog on our cards.
I must say I was not looking forward to this challenge, a few months ago we lost our beloved dog of 18 years in his memory I have made this card using the two Stampavie Xmas Puppies. At Christmas He would get together with my Mum's dog and tear into their gifts, although I think it was more the dog biscuits hidden in the wrapping that was more interesting than the gift.
All the dies I have used are from Elizabeth Craft Designs, Outdoor edges, stand up words, evergreen pivot, clouds from all seasons tree. to decorate the trees I have used the micro fine glitter and glitter stickers. 
 For the for the front of the card I started with the puppies and the outdoor edges to create a winter scene. It was then attached to the card with foam dots, the base card cut and decorated with the pivot evergreen trees.
Inside it is a winter scene continues with a combination of  all the dies.

Pop on over to CCEE Stampers to see what the other designers have come up with.
