A Card for Several Challenges

Good Morning Crafters, or should I say Campers? wow wasnt it a hot one yesterday, this is how bad it was for our dog Missy
Im not sure what she thinks shes doing, but we found her like this several times yesterday, she doesnt normally sleep on her back with her legs in the air, but oh well I suppose when its hot you have to find away to cool your tummy.
Anyway todays card was created for this weeks Sugary Sunday and Sundays with Santa "Anything Goes" Challenges on Facebook, Ive also used the Sugar Bowl sketch so I can add it to that challenge as well. The image is Im not totally sure a Xmas one but felt it was near enough so Ive stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels no.17 to cut it out and then drawn around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one of the LOV circle stamps and has been also mounted on a piece of the same green card as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and the papers I used are from Echo Parks "Holly Jolly Xmas" paper set, the first is a green background with white snowflakes on, the second is a strip of red and white spots and the third a sentiment paper which was stuck as the sketch required. The mounted image was then positioned towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have used several punched out Martha Steward snowflake shapes which I have mounted up and popped a large pearl in the center of it and placed at the top on the right.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hello Shirley,

Would you believe the Buffy regularly lays like that, even since she's been so ill she still thinks it's a good way to get the others to play with her. The puppy, Poppy who incidentally looks very like Missy often lays that way as well.

Another stunning card, really like that music paper.
