Where did the Years GO??

Hi Everyone! 

I am crafting away while waiting for the snow to start that the weathermen insist is coming.
 My son's 22nd birthday is this week, so I needed a card, of course.  I wanted a really special card as last year he was really struggling, so we did not get to celebrate his birthday.  He has always been a huge dog lover; I had my eye on this Kraftin Kimmie stamp and went ahead and ordered it.  It just arrived in the mail yesterday.  I still have lots to learn with Copics, especially when it comes to hair and fur, but I do not think my son will over analyze this!  :)

I colored the image and fussy cut it out, then colored the face/head a second time and fussy cut it out and layered it on with dimensionals.  I followed this great sketch from JUGS-

I am entering this in the Seize the Birthday Challenge, Anything Goes,
and 613 Avenue Create, Anything Goes Challenge, with an Option to Use Your Stash.  My dp is some of the first 6x6 paper I ever purchased. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Lee Ann  :)
