Birthday Card ~ Woof {2nd Post)

I searched for hours last night trying to find pattern paper
 to put behind the happy words I cut from my front panel 
but could not find any that were the right colors.
I didn't want to just put solid paper behind them 
and then I spotted this jute twine in my stash.
The colors were perfect. Now the hard part.
I taped up the back real well and started laying it down 
forgetting of course my allergies and asthma.
Well a few inhaler puffs, itchy skin, throat 
and eyes later and I got the result I was hoping for.

I tried to get the colors as close as possible to the inspiration photo.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Dog, bones, paws and ball cut using the Loyal Friends set from My Creative Time.
*Happy cut using the Happy Thoughts set from My Creative Time.
*Sentiment from the Happy Thoughts set from My Creative Time.
*Pattern paper from my stash
*Jute twine from American Crafts

May your day always be filled with love.
