Paper Smooches SPARKS-I Dig You

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! *** 

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a Picture Perfect challenge based on the picture seen above.  I was inspired by the house in the photo and the pretty blue accent color, too.

I Dig You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I used the Dog Icons dies to make a dog house for my focal image.  Every dog house needs a dog, so I made mine with the Paws for a Cause stamp set and matching Paws Cause Icons dies.  The dog house and dog were arranged on a blue card base on top of a strip of "grass" cut with one of the Backdrop Builders dies.  To fill out the scene, I added a pair of curly clouds cut from shimmery white cardstock .  I stamped the "I dig you" sentiment from the Woofers and Tweeters set to finish the card.  I may go back and add some tiny die cut hearts to the card above the dog . . .

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week based on the photo. Here’s where to find them:
