Take Pride

I needed another masculine birthday card and I chose to use Take Pride. I stamped the elephants on New Leaf cardstock with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I really love the dimension and texture it gave the card. I stamped the elephant and colored it with Copic markers and cut and embossed it with the Label Two nesties. The tag is Spellbinders and the sentiment is from a GWP stamp.

Thanks for all the advice and congrats on the puppy. He seems to be adjusting ok. My kids, on the other hand, are driving me crazy fighting over who is going to take care of him. My dog, Picasso, is not sure what he thinks. Peanut loves to chase him and he gets very annoyed by that. It really is hilarious--this little dog chasing a dog much larger than himself. Peanut is so small that when he walks, he waddles and when he runs it is just too funny.

Have a great day!

Your coloring on this amazing!
At least your kids are fighting over who gets to take care of the dog and not who has to!

Great masculine card! Oh, and my hubby would be living out in the doghouse with the dog if he ever brought one home!
