Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggity Dog...

Hi everyone :)

I want to show you today a couple of cards I have made with a bargain I got in the January sales!  I brought myself a Hot Diggity Dog compendium from Create and Craft - I do have the digital designer but as it was such a bargain I couldn't resist!  I especially like the little 'elements' (the 3D & mini decoupaged stickers).  

I have made a few cards from it so far but here are a couple I especially like and wanted to show you.

Both of the cards are 6" easel card, however I think this first one must be my favourite, I think it is because pink works really well with the brown, I do personally like this colour combination.  The sentiments are on frosted glitter card so are quite hard to see - the top one says 'Happy Birthday To You' and the one to the side of the image says 'Little Twinkle Toes'.  I really didn't want to add too much to this card as I thought it looks quite simple and elegant, so keeping this in mind I added some co-ordianted card candi and paper flowers.

 Here is my second card, suitable for both male or female I think.  Again I have teamed the green with brown textured card, I think the reason why brown works well is due 'Hot Diggity Dog' having brown in him.  The image at the top is decoupaged and I have raised the image of the frog at the bottom of the card too.  The small frogs at the bottom of the card I took from one of the 'elements' 3D stickers to finish the card off.
I am entering both of these cards into the following challenges - 
Emma's Crafty Challenge - Animal Theme Challenge
Docrafts - Make A Card using shapes

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my creations - I will surely be bringing you some more soon.

Happy crafting,
Gemma
