one layer cards. . . .

are not my forte.  And, I don't do cute very well either.  But, I wanted to play in a couple of challenges so I tried combining the two:


I used Simon's You Are Pawsome set and Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies set for this card. The dog was colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I sponged some distress inks for the background and added a hand-drawn border.  I am not so sure this is CAS enough for the challenge, but the powers that be can be the judge.  :*)

Challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Flickr group:  one layer card.
Less is More:  clean and simple with an animal.
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  animals.

Have a wonderful day.
