Nap Time!!

Today I thought that I would share with you a card that I made using a new Shirley's 2 Girls stamp called "Dog in Chair"...Doesn't this sweet pup look so comfy in that oversized chair!! LOL...Right when I saw this image, I knew that I wanted to use my new "Doggie Sayings" DP that I picked up at Joanns craft store...I loved the colors used in this paper, so I decided to use them as my color scheme...For the main image, I paper pieced the background of the stamp using some maroon cardstock and colored in the rest of the image using various copic markers...I also added a little bit of bling to the chair by adding some baby blue rhinestones and glitter from my atyou spica glitter marker...I distressed all the edges using a sponge and some distress ink and popped this all up using some foam mouting tape...I just love love love Stampin up's big brads...I decided to use three of them on this card and add some funky fibers to give this card some dimension... For the inside of the card, I used them same DP and stamped the sentiment "never, never, never pass up... a good place for a nap"...Ohh how true these words are!! Please check out what the other Ladies with Attitude are up to...they are making some fabulous cards!! Also check out the Shirleys 2 Girls blog and participate in their new "green" challenge...Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!!
