Whew! I finished my card in time to participate in this month's SFYTT (Sketch for You to Try) and the Inspiration Photo challenge on the Dancing in Pajamas blog. I have to admit, I really struggled with this sketch.

I adapted the color scheme (red/white/kraft/dark brown) and hearts from the TCP Inspiration Photo:

Colour Q's current color challenge is a very similar one, so I'm entering my card into their challenge as well. (Thanks for the tip, Noelle!)

Here's my card after several re-designs:

Here's a closeup of cute little Angel Yappy:

I popped him up with pop dots, added some glitter to his wings and pink to his nose. I popped up the heart accents with just some foam tape, so they are not as puffed out as Yappy, giving him center stage. :)

And speaking of dogs, I got great news today - my foster dog, Tinkerbelle, got adopted over the weekend. Yay!

Awwww! I LOVE little angel Yappy! Or maybe he's a cupid Yappy! This is a fabulous card, I really love the way you've used the colors. :) Thanks for popping by my blog.
