Sad Dog

It's time for another fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the wonderful and talented Jennifer Timko.  And Jennifer has come up with the type of sketch that I just love - lots of wide open space:

I decided to use that space to create a little scene using some NBUS stamps by MFT.  I stamped, colored and die-cut the dog, kennel and bowl. and then arranged them onto a panel that I'd sponged with some grass and sky.

I white embossed the sentiment and had the dog "standing" on the sentiment to ground him a bit.  The whole panel was popped up on foam tape and a thin strip of black and white striped patterned paper was adhered down the left side.

Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the team.

I'm entering this card in the latest challenge by Cardz for Guyz who are looking for wood in the design.
