A Card for Kennys Challenge - A Sketch by Donna

Good Afternoon hope you are enjoying your weekend, this morning when I woke up it was freezing or at least it felt like that it was definitely 14 degrees and thats cold for me, so I got out our winter Duvet and soon changed it over from the summer one, I dont want to have to put on the heating just yet or not until we get back from our holiday, hubby found out its 25 degrees in Gran Canaria and that sounds fabulous to me so I carnt wait to go.
Anyway todays card has been created for Kennys Challenge this week, and our dear friend Donna has created a fabulous sketch for it, Kenny has also just released a lot of new digi images "Critterz" and Ive actually used the freebie one that I was on offer on his website (he has monthly freebies for you if youd like to pop across and see, this month its a young lad). Anyway I printed them out and coloured this saucy dog and his girlfriend "Devilish Donna" with my copic pens, then cut them out completely before creating my card.
The card is a 7"x 7" base card with a first layer of blue card, the two papers I have used are from Donnas own papers from her Designer Extreme Vol.1 Cd and if you click on the link here it will take you to her website for you to purchase all her fabulous creations. Ive used this lovely all over balloon design and also a dark blue background with swirling star pattern on, this is the one I used for the base layer, and the other one was cut in two to create the two mounts across the middle. On top of this I have positioned my Eyelet Circle diecut in blue, with a circle of red in the centre, on this I mounted my image with the dog just to the right of her at the bottom.
The sentiment is one that I created on my computer and have printed and mounted this also on to a piece of blue card and this was stuck at the bottom on the left, to finish of I have stuck some star gems all around the image in the middle.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-

Hi Shirlet

Winter divet was exactly what my hubby mentioned this monring. A distinct chill about and we did give the heating a blast round the system last evening.

25deg sounds very accaptable to me, is there room in your suitcase for a tiny one ?
