"A Dogs Life" - Sarahs second CD

Im so glad that many of you liked the card from Sarahs new CD yesterday "Cats Whiskers", that I thought you might like to see one from the companion CD "A Dogs Life". I have chosen a boxer looking very worrying at his master knowing that hes going away and wondering if hes going to, my eldest daughter had a couple of boxers and they do have such lovely characters and Sarah has caught the expression of this dog perfectly. On this CD there are Yorkies, Pugs, Jack Russell, Dalmation, Labrador/Setter, Bassett Hound, Shitz zu and of course this appealing Boxer.
I have printed the main topper on some photo paper cut it out and mounted it onto gold and green mirri board picking the colours up in the backing papers. I then printed a backing paper onto acetate and card to create the main card, I also created a insert in My Craft Studio and fixed them altogether with some green satin ribbon that I have threaded through all pieces together.
I also printed one of the ribbon strips and stuck it to the card under the acetate on the opening edge, and stuck the topper on top of the acetate wrapper and popped a peeling underneath.
I will print more of the samples nearer the time to Sarahs preview program which is due to go to air on the 14th February on Create and Craft, she has another program on there this Sunday, once again selling her new "Yesteryears Floral Vase Edition" at 11am, if you missed her preview program two weeks ago you will be able to catch up with her this coming Sunday.
