Sloopy Asked For Me
Those of you following the saga of me getting a wedding party together will be pleased to learn that I got Sloopy to ask her sitter if she would be in the wedding. And, thanks to Sloopy's efforts, I'm elated that she agreed to be a part of our special day.
I decided to make the front of the card seem like any other card. This would fit Sloopy's personality. The Sloopy Dog looks out for herself first and is always demanding belly rubs. This adorable dachshund image is from Cowtown Stamps. I stamped the image with Marvy dye black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored it with Copic markers and cut it out to adhere to the patterned paper panels. The speech bubble and sentiment are computer-generated. Patterned paper, black cardstock, ribbon and adhesive pearls were also used to complete the front of this card.
The inside of the card is where the question is asked...I altered a Cowtown Stamps dachshund image by placing a bouquet from Hero Arts into the mouth of the dog. These images, like those on the front of the card, were also stamped with Marvy dye black onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and Colored with Copic markers. Patterned paper, black cardstock, and computer-generated speech bubble and sentiment were also used to complete the inside of the card.
Thanks, Sloopy, for helping The Mommy. And thanks so much to the recipient of this card for being a special friend to me! I'm honored to have you in our wedding.
