Spinning Yappy Birthday -- For Dies R Us Challenges

 It's December 15th, and it's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenges. Challenges are Anything Goes, as long as you use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store.  There are many different brands of die sold, so this is very easy to do! 

My husband celebrated his birthday recently.  I always make a card for him from the dog.  This is that card...

I had the dog wrapped tightly so that when he pulled it out of the envelope, it 'spun'.  I swear he enjoys the cards from the dog more than the card from me.  Ah well, he probably enjoys the dog more than me, too! :)

I created this card with a die from Crafter's Companion called Twirling Dog.  It comes with stamps and dies of the dog, the bone, the ball, and it also cuts out the dog house shape.  

I colored all the elements with Copic markers. The sentiment was computer generated, then cut out with a die from Tonic Studios

I inked the edges of the card with Wilted Violet Distress Ink. A tiny bit of Timeless Twine made the Twirling Dog complete.

I hope you can join us these next 2 weeks for our Anything Goes Challenge at Dies R Us. A gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store will be awarded, and 3 Designer Choice awards, too.

For our Canadian friends, visit the Didi Crafts Store for great selection and reasonable shipping rates!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
