My #1 Dog Card


For this card I used the #1 Dog digital image from Hambo Hoedown and I used colored pencils.
I used the Cuttlebug "numbers" embossing folder for the background and accent strip was embossed with a dog bone & paw print embossing  folder.
I used a small circle punch to cut out the 3, red,  paw print embellishments that are in the upper left hand corner.

I made this card for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Challenge.  The theme for this weeks challenge is "Cards 4 Kids". OWH makes cards and sends them to the military serving overseas. They in turn send them to their families in the United States. 

I am also entering this card in this weeks Hambo Hoedown Challenge. The theme for this weeks challenge is " Use A Number". I used a Hambo Hoedown #1 Dog image and the background has Numbers on it.

I am also entering this card as my #3 homework assignment for OWH Design Bootcamp. The lesson for the 3rd session is "Any Way You Slice It" or Composition & The Rule Of Thirds".  This lesson is on creating good compositions. We learn where to place the focal point in our composition.


  1. So cute and the embossed papers are awesome! Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Hambo Hoedown.

    Peace & Luv,

  2. What a cute dog! Hambo has such fun images. I can definitely see the Rule of Thirds Grid underlying this design, both the dog and the sentiment are in intersecting points. In this case grouping them closer and choosing one intersecting point would strengthen them into one obvious focal point. We'll be talking about creating relationships and grouping items in our August Bootcamp, so stay tuned. :) Thanks for joining in the March Bootcamp.
