April Showers are what my Puppy Sees

Wow, after a few short blog hops and cruising all over the Web, I wasn't sure
if I was going to find time in between Mommy duties and computer escapades to
be crafty at all....LOL!
There were just too many fun blog hops to pass
on the chance to get
some fun inspiration though!
So, onto my card:

So I made a quick CAS card with the help from a few challenge inspirations:
April Card Game at The Crafter's Cafe - Get Hippity With Ippity Group
to use Blue, Green and Purple

along with her fun sketch

The theme was to make a card that depicts what your doggie (or other animal)
may see when they look out the window.

Well, my dogs see their doghouse at the edge of the property
and I couldn't resist adding in some rain.  After all, this is April in Ohio. . . LOL!

I chose to use my raindrop background stamp from 
since the theme of April Showers is being hosted at 

I used VersaMagic - Cloud White ink and Whispers Opaque embossing powder.  The chipboard elements (puppy, bone, and doghouse) are all from the DCWV - The Pets Stack chipboard box.  The sentiment sticker is by K&Company.  The papers are textured blue card stock (outside), white card stock (base), and the purple, green and blue polka dot card stock is MME - wild asparagus "Family Roots".  I simply applied some foam squares by Recollections onto my MME paper and my puppy and adhered everything else flat to its background.

I like how it turned out, considering it only took a few short moments to create it.  I would love to hear your thoughts, too . . .
