Pro - Am Showdown #8 - Dog in the Snow

I made this for my self-imposed challenge, Pro-Am Showdown, where I take inspiration from some of the nicest commercially produced cards I've received.

Here's the 'pro' card that inspired me:
The commercially manufactured card that inspired me. 
I think this pro card is lovely, and it gives me lots of ideas..

For my 'amateur' card I used the dog stamp from Avery Elle , masked it and stamped the snow (Hero Arts) . I  coloured the dog with markers and paper-pieced the scarf from red glitter paper.  Then I stamped the sentiments (Mama Elephant).

  1. This is a super cute card and I love your self imposed challenge! That snow stamp makes a really cool background. Before I read your description I thought you must have used paint or something.

  2. I love to see how you look at a card then you do your version. The doggie card is fantastic
