Thank You Waffleflower

Hi Everyone,

almost Christmas, but what is that? This wiener dog just weaseled himself in here, in complete disregard of all the upcoming festivities...



And once was not enough - he has to show up 4 times...Originally I planned on three times, but I smudged the card, so this required another appearance ;)

Well, that cutie is by Waffle flower, one of my brand new stamp sets. I love it! Of course I am playing in the Waffle flower challenge, which at first caused me some consternation - stamp layering??? Well, I finally got what that meant. So I pulled out some stamps I cut myself a looooong time ago from rubber scraps and did some stamp layering as a background, using kind of the colors from the inspiration photo. Added the Wiener dog - nice layering, huh?


The enamel dots have two functions - first, they balance the card and second - the color shows up in the inspiration photo.

Okay, you win. She's an amazing card artist AND makes her own stamps...brilliant. Your card made me laugh out loud when I saw it. Love that background but repeating the dog is fabulous design work.

Deine Karte ist herrlich. Noch lustiger ist allerdings der Witz unter deiner Einstellung. Sind so die Stretch-Limosinen entstanden???
Genieß die Weihnachtstage, ich denke an dich und deine Familie,
