I Ruff You

The plans I had made for today were cancelled due to snow and freezing drizzle so I have an unexpected day of crating time.  I'm using it to practice my coloring and enter a couple challenges.  This little cutie, from Gerda Steiner, is part of a progressive challenge.  You buy the first image, then enter the challenge, and the next month is free!   I love her whimsical images, so, here goes!
Meet Oscar!
I have a friend with a weiner dog named Oscar.  He's a long-haired Dachshund.  If you squint your eyes just right, he looks kind of like this.  Kinda.
The original Gerda Steiner digi stamp, Dachshund in Love,looks like this.
I used just the dog portion, colored it with Copi markers, then mounted it on a card front.  The Valentine Window Card Top cutting file is from The Cutting Cafe. I stamped the word "ruff" using a retired Close To My Heart stamp set.  All card stock is also from Close To My Heart. To connect the heart, I used a bit of Aqua Blue Timeless Twine.  I {heart} that color!
That's it!  Off to do some more coloring!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Gerda Steiner Jan. Challenge -- Dachshund in Love
Creative Cutting Edge -- Valentine
