Christmas Kickstart #17 - Dachsund Through The Snow

Hello friends.  Playing along with the current challenge over at Christmas Kickstart where the theme is DACHSUND THROUGH THE SNOW.


I had an ADORABLE die cut Dachsund (Marianne's Designs) left from my sweet friend Birgit that was the start of my card...


Isn't he just the sweetest all dressed up in his Christmas hat and scarf?!  I did a little bit of sponging around my little guy with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then added him to a die cut circle (Lil Inkers) that I sponged some snow drifts onto using Weathered Wood Distress Ink and a torn piece of cardstock.  Here's a closer up where you can see the background of the circle a little bit better...


My card base is a 5" x 5" and I layered it with a piece of Real Red cardstock and a piece of plaid DSP from Echo Park's I Love Winter 6 x 6 pad.  After attaching the circle with my pup, I embossed my sentiment from PTI's In The Meadow in white on a strip of Real Red cardstock and added it to my card with a strip of foam tape.  I finished with a little bit of glitter to the hat and a piece of jute twine.  Very simple but I really think it turned out cute!

There's still a few more days to play along with this challenge, so check out the wonderful inspiration and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
