Rotate Sketch & Stash for a Spoon Full of Sugar(y) Copic Creations

My cousin Bob has the most delightful golden retriever called Rusty.  He also has a birthday coming up.  I bought this image from Just Inklined last year specifically to make Bob's birthday card this year.  My little cutester is coloured with Copics and I'm entering my card in the Copic Creations challenge which is for "complimentary colours" this week.  I cut out the dog's face and paw and curled them with my curling tool, adhering him to the background with silicone glue to give dimension. 
A Spoon Full of Sugar want to see "birthday wishes" and I rotated the "sketch" at Sketch & Stash for my layout.  I have refrained from using any flowers because the card is, afterall, for a man.  The fence is made from woodgrain cardstock kindly donated by best matey Julie, embossed to give it panels, and I have added a teeny bit of flower soft around the bottom edge.  Bob has a deck at the back of the house and I think it looks like Rusty is leaning over the deck.  My DPs are Basic Grey and the photo corners are cut with a Sizzix die.

Lovely work, Lesley! Really jumped out at me in my preview so I had to come over to have a proper look at it. The dog is so cute and you made him so realistic on his deck/fence! Super!
