My Mother's Day Whimsy Creation!

I won five of the new Whimsy Stamps digis in their March release hop, and these are two that I decided to use for my Mother's Day card. Crissy Armstrong's "In the Doghouse" on the left is my Benny dog, and Meljen's Designs "She Loves Animals" is just perfect!
I had a go at a twisted easel card, and was surprised at how easy it was (once I'd worked out which way round to stick the images)!




Supplies:
Images: "In the Doghouse" & "She Loves Animals" from Whimsy Stamps, both coloured with Promarkers.
Sentiment: "Happy Mother's Day" from My Grafico.
Paper: Paw print card from Payper Box.
Embellishments: Dog themed brads (forgot where from, sorry!), Papermania rub-on pawtracks & bones.
