Best Things in Life...


I combined two challenges that go perfectly together! 
The Best of Friends challenge at Cards in Envy and the 
Animal Theme challenge at Less is More


My first thought was of a boy and his dog. This digital image from
Mo Manning was perfect for what I wanted to do.
I'm seeing black and white patterned paper everywhere lately and love
the 'pop' it gives a card. I used my versa mark pen to fill in the 'gems' on the
dogs collar and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  It doesn't
show well in the pic but it gives it a nice finish.

supplies
all from Stampin' Up unless noted
card stock: whisper white, basic black
dsp: back to black
stamp set: feel goods
digital image: buds (mo manning)
ink: memento black, island indigo, crumb cake, chocolate chip,
   pear pizzazz, blush blossom, basic black
blendabilities: daffodil delight
embossing powder: silver

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
