Get Well Doggie

I have been wanting to stamp this little guy for awhile, especially since I have started "collecting" Copic Markers. The sketch that Jen posted today for the SFYTT just fit this image. I am totally in a Kraft paper mode lately as well (which works nicely in with the Caardvarks challenge). So technically this is my first card for two challenges! (Go me!) I thought about doing something with the background on the kraft, but then the analytical side of my brain took over and said "No Katie, less is more for this one". I did use my Scor-it to score the navy-ish paper at the bottom. Here is a close up of that:

I really like this card. Clean and simple. It didn't take me that long to conceptualize, although the coloring and such took longer then expected because I was playing. Oh, and for those of you who are using Copics, if you have not tried Neehah cardstock you are totally missing out! Sooo much easier to blend and shade colors.
Supplies
Cardstock: White (Neehah Cardstock), Kraft (Stampin Up), Navy (American Crafts), Red (Archiver's)
Stamps: Doggie (Whipper Snapper), Sentiment (Papertrey Ink)
Markers: Copics
Ribbon: Amuse (did you know amuse made ribbons? I do now, and I may be in trouble)

Great job on the bottom panel - it feels just like a room. Thanks for the paper tip. I'm just starting to "collect" Copics as well and could use all the advise I can get!
