Cute Just Got Cuter - All Dressed Up

Hello everyone.  I'm back!  This is my second post for today, which is highly unusual for me, but I couldn't resist sharing this one.  I stumbled upon a site for digi stamps called All Dressed Up.  Oh my goodness, what some adorable images.  They have a few freebies on the site, too.  So I grabbed this little puppy which came with a sentiment that said, "Cute just got cuter."  I don't know what his name is, but that certainly fits.  I made a couple of cards with him.  I decided I would try for a one layer card using the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for their 200th celebration.  Here's the sketch...

and here's my card...

I am completely enamored with this little guy.   The image is looking up, so I had to come up with something he was looking at.  I thought he might have been a little sad, like he lost his balloon.  So, that's what he got and big red balloon, that he  It was while making this card I realized I didn't have a outline stamp of a balloon.  It seemed a bit impossible, but in any case, I couldn't find one.  The balloon here was die cut with the Balloons die set from SSS from some Copic Xpressit paper.  I colored it to match his little bow.  I wanted this to be all one layer, and it is, except the balloon.  I adhered it directly to my card front without any dimensional adhesive, so it's still pretty flat.   I printed this little fellow on some Neenah 110# cardstock.  The clouds are just drawn in with my Copics.  I'll list all the supplies below.

I'll be entering this card in a few challenges, which I will list below as well.   I think this little guy will be starring in a few more cards in the near future, so keep a look out.  You can also go grab him yourself here.  Apparently, he's been out for a while.  I'm always a day late and a dollar short 

This really is it for me today. Thanks for stopping by!
