The neighborhood dogs

This is the first card I've made where one of my sons has walked in and said
I really love that card. Of course him loving dogs helps. I actually really love
this one in real life as well, as this photo doesn't really show how bright and
fun it really is.

Here is the Birthday tag, I had the idea of the dogs down the bottom but
wasn't sure if it would really work, but I thought what the heck give it a go
and if it doesn't I can just stamp another, but it looks great".

I put some clear dimensional on the vehicle to gloss it up and make it stand
out, I also put it on the windows to make them look shiny like glass and the
puff of smoke and the clouds above the houses I used Liquid Applique to
make them look cloudy and puffy.....

The section with the car is actually raised so it looks like it is driving in front
of the houses. I cuttlebugged the card above and below the picture and
pinned holes in the yellow. I've had this idea for so long and bought the
tailgaiting wheel not long after I started, cause Jay loves dog's so much,
and when the Neighbourhood wheel came out I just had to team them up.

I really enjoyed making this card.

luv, Kristy
