BG49, L15, SSS: Christmas Card

Hi.  Today's card was inspired by three challenges.
The design/sketch is by Heather at Basic Grey Challenge #49 (Jovial).
The theme was inspired by the
And one technique was inspired by Lawnscaping #15:  Distressing.

All three of the challenges are sponsored by the incredible online store, Simon Says Stamp!

I colored the dog, added Glossy Accents to the nose and tag,
flocked the muzzle and topped him off with a festive Santa Hat!

The edges of paper were distressed with the edge distressing tool by TH.
There's some inked edges as well.

The banner was stamped on cream cs and I inked it with Vintage Photo.

If you click on the photo, it will give a clearer image.

Papers: Basic Grey "Jovial"
