Birthday Dirt

We had a beautiful day today! The temps were a little warmer but there was a chilly stiff wind. I did get to walk for a bit at lunch. I think we are supposed to have rain for the next few days. My card tonight is for a birthday. This one probably leans to the masculine side.


This adorable little pup is obviously getting into trouble. I just loved the sentiment that came with the set at From the Heart Stamps. The set is called Digging Dog. I colored the image with Copic markers and inked the bottom of the image with Mowed Lawn distress ink. I printed the sentiment and then used Mowed Lawn ink and Desert Sands ink to blend the sentiment strip. Finished it off with a banner with some paw prints on it from Paper Smooches. I used the sketch from i {heart} sketches with a twist #144.

The twist is to make a masculine card. I think I could use this for a masculine birthday without a problem! 
I am entering these challenges:
That's it for me this evening. We had our daughter and son in law over for dinner this evening so I didn't get much time to play tonight. I need a sympathy card so I'd better get a move on. Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon.

I love the contrast of the pastels and the black dog. The paw die really just works perfectly with those red flowers too. Thanks so much for sharing this Stamp of the Month with us at From The Heart Stamps. See you in April.
