Happy Birthday Sausage!

I made this card for a close friend with whom I share a love of dachshunds; she certainly is one of a kind!  When we are old ladies, we will have a dachshund each and we'll terrorize the neighbourhood with them, although I think we'll be more terrifying than the dogs!
 The main image and matching sentiment stamps are by Woodware, I coloured with my usual Promarkers and attached the dog to the card with foam tape.
I used a DL card to echo the length of the dog, and stamped some Inkylicious splodges directly onto the blank using three colours of Memento ink.  The card has a lovely linen texture which gives the stamped background a distressed look, in-keeping with the nature of the design.


 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Corner - For the Dogs
Southern Girls - #155 - Pop It Up With Foam
Artistic Inspirations - #174 - Anything Goes
Pile It On - #128 - Humour Puns

    I'd love to have a Dachshund when I'm old...well okay, older!...but hubby would rather a 'proper' dog - something a bit taller! Hugs, Lisa x

    Hello Wendy !
    I'm writting an article for the issue 51 of the french magazine called "Passion cartes créatives".
    The subject is "depth effects in card making"/shadow box cards...
    I wish to show your card (seen here : http://confessionsofapapersniffer.blogspot.com/2014/05/if-you-go-down-to-woods.html) within this article.
    Would you agree with that ?
    If yes, could you please send me as soon as possible a high resolution photo of your creation ?
    Of course, your name or pen name if you want will appear next to the image, and the address of your blog will be in the address book.
    Thank you in advance for your quick answer, even if it is negative, so that I can get organized (I have to give my paper very soon).
    Best Regards, Elise AMANN
