Happy Birthday Dog

Here we go, another week begins!
I can hardly believe we are more than halfway thru May! Tomorrow is my early day to go to work.  I have an 8am meeting, but that means I need to leave the house by 6:30am, a tad earlier if I want to pick up a latte along the way (and yes, I will be stopping at Starbucks so I will stay awake!).

I have a birthday card to share tonight.  I challenged myself to make a CAS card, something I rarely do because I find it very difficult.

I used Inky Antics stamps for the image and sentiment.  They are stamped with Memento and colored with Copics.  I added Crystal Stickles to the cupcake icing.  The background is embossed using a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder.  I mounted this on red cardstock after popping up my pup with 3M foam tape.

I am entering the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS - Happy Birthday
Simply Less is More - Cats &/or Dogs
Gingerloft - Happy Birthday
4 Crafty Chicks - Happy Birthday

Thank you for stopping by!
