Happy birthday Challenge at Crafty Ann's

This week at Crafty Ann's our challenge is an easy one for you as we have a 'Happy Birthday' theme. As usual the lucky winner will receive a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop

As soon as I saw this cute little dachshund I knew he'd be perfect for one of my friends as he has a little dog just like this one! You can find him in Crafty Ann's shop. He is coloured with promarkers and then cut out and layered up on a couple of nestie layers. The mottled stone bp is also from Crafty Ann's of course and its one of my all time favourites, such a beautiful rich blue. To tie it in to the doggy theme I've stamped paw prints with brown versafine ink and layered it over some brown distressed paper from my stash. The little lead embellie is made with some brown grossgrain ribbon, a little charm and a brad.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A spoon full of sugar: Birthday wishes
Cards for men: recipe : 2 ddps, 1 image, 3 embellies (ribbon, charm and brad)
Craft your passion: Male card/project
Crazy 4 Challenges: Die cutting
