Smile - Tiddly Inks Fabulous Friday

Hi ya everyone!!! It's time for another Fabulous Inky Friday!  I didn't post this on the main blog because there are just too many wonderful creations to share with everyone over there...but you have to check it out by clicking HERE.  I decided to make a fun little card using some new Copics I recently won at our local scrap and stamp place here in Oregon.  I first colored this wonderful image appropriately called Walk The Dogs from Tiddly Inks - ONLY $2 by the way!
I cut the image out with my paper trimmer and then added all the matching dots with my Copics...I love this effect.  I then used my Tim Holtz Black Soot ink and distressed the edges a bit.  Which leads me to entering this card in the challenge for Whimsical Wednesdays at Always Crafting!  Love their challenges and thought it would be fun to enter!
Next, I took a number of paper from one of my favorite DCWV stack Black Current and layered them.  I used a satin black ribbon to run along the bottom.  I then stamped this very cute sentiment "You make me Smile all over my Face" from Inkadinkadoo stamps with my Versafine Black ink.
I added a little satin bow and then a line of black gems.  I got the giggles after finishing this card...I'm not so sure the sentiment actually goes with the image since she doesn't have a smile...but don't pets do that for us - make us smile all over our face!?
Have a great weekend and don't forget about my BLOG GIVEAWAY for reaching 250+ members!
