Embellish Magazine Color Challenge: Quirky-Cutesy-Clean Style

Hi peeps! I would say TGIF but I have work tomorrow. I made another card for the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge because I wasn't happy with my previous submissions. I used some of my Dotty Biscotti in my card last night and I still had it in my mind this evening. I used the aqua polka dots this time and tried it with kraft again. It turned out great! Since this is a "cutesy" card challenge, I had to use my favorite, cutesy, little dog stamp from Inkadinkado. I stamped him out using Memories black ink on a vintage cream cardstock then I stamped him again using Versamark on kraft cardstock. I cut out his kraft "spots" and adhered them to the vintage cream cardstock to add more dimension. I also placed him over an oval which I brushed with tea dye Distressed ink and Aqua Mist ink.  I used cute peach buttons to make sure I was following the color specifications of the challenge. I'd say this is my final submission for this challenge.  I'm very happy with it. All in all, I'd say he's cutesy! :) Enjoy your weekend!
