Sofa so good...

Morning - blimey It's Sunday again already and here is my latest creation using Dr Digi image called Sofa So Good.

I love this image - so many times I've come home to find our dog in this exact position on the sofa... although he's not quite this big to take up the whole chair! I know my Dad will appreciate this card as the dog has always got the best seat in the house, to the extent that when I was a kid I got the floor if the dog had already claimed his spot on the Sofa!! Spoilt creature! It certainly is a dogs life in our houses...

To make this card I used an Anitas round card blank. I used a circle cutter to the background paper which is from KI Memories - Colour theory collection (Possibly one of the oldest sheets of paper I own - reckon I've had it at least 8 years! Hoarder!!) The ribbon is also from my stash!
I glued the ribbon on top of the patterned paper and trimmed it to fit. I put some PVA glue on the edges to stop it fraying. The coloured image I stuck on top with 3d foam. The greeting is from my peel off stash and the Scribble tile letters I got from Hobbycraft.  I added some frosted lace stickles to the stuffing coming from the sofa and also some glaze on the split tea and the dogs tongue.
Finally I added a few doodlebug sequins in shades of brown.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Dog - Light Fawn, Nutmeg, Saddle Brown, Cocoa. Warm grey 5 for his paws.
Sofa - Tea green, Pastel blue, Carpi blue & Twilight sky.
Tongue - Carmine & Dusky pink
 I edged the whole image with warm grey 1.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Suzy Bees bloomin challenge - Something beginning with S (W)
Chocolate, coffee & cards - Animals (2w)
Crafty cardmarkers - Circular cards. (2w)
Stamp & Create - Brown (m)

Anyway - we won't talk about rugby today... the win last night did little to redeem them! Question is who should I know support??

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I'll be back soon
