It's Too Darn Hot

I've been very busy this weekend making cards for various challenges and upcoming events.  This one is for two challenges whose themes overlapped a bit.

I think this little Scottie has decided that it's just too hot to go chasing after that ball.  I had fun making this a slimline card so the ball could really bounce beyond him and he'd just watch it!

The dog and ball are colored with Copic markers.  I made the ball red even though it looks like a tennis ball, because my little dog has her favorite red ball.

For the background I used Distress Oxide Inks and stencils.  The lawn in cut using a new slimline die from Mama Elephant.

This card is for these challenges:

The Card Concept "Dog Days of Summer."  And.....

CASology "Ball."

I had a great time creating this card.  I would have like for the pup to look a bit more like my dear sweet Penny, but she's a Shorkie so that just wasn't in my stamp collection!
