Pilin' on the Puppies - Sketch Challenge at Pile It On

Pile It On #57
This week at the Pile It On Challenge we have a Sketch created by our own Katie. We're sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I used their Cute Just Got Cuter digi stamp.

I printed the adorable puppy on three patterned papers & paper pieced it. I added a bit of pink to its ears with a marker. I cut the yellow piece with a Spellbinders die, and used the same die as a stencil for the white piece. Both are textured papers to look like fabric, and I added faux stitching with a Pitt artist pen.

I've had the background patterned paper for a long time. I made the sentiment using the Ahoy in Stitches font, printed it on a textured paper, and cut/embossed it with a PageMakers die. It's attached to the card with two small button-shaped brads.
