Digistamps4Joy - "Use DIES or PUNCHES"

It's time for a new challenge at Digistamps4Joy and this challenge theme is to "Use DIES or PUNCHES".  I must confess that with being sick the last couple weeks I have not been spending time in my craft room and waited until the absolute last minute.  Usually I'm more on top of things.  This is not the best way to start off a Design Team assignment.  But the good news is that I woke up this morning and wasn't coughing as much.  Hoping by the end of the week to be 100% and back on track,

For my card I used an image called "Best Friends".  When I was looking at the image I decided I didn't want to use markers but wanted to use pencils to color it to keep it soft.  I liked the that the dog looked shaggy and so I kept that "shaggy" feel in coloring the little girl by not blending the colors after I used the pencils.  The die cut is the white doily.

Come on over and join us at Digistamps4Joy - I'd love to see you!!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!!!
