Just trying to stay busy

Its a dreary day today.  So I thought I would make a few card backs so that if the need arose I could just finish up the card and send it off.  Well one thing lead to another and I finished all but one.  Not much stamping was done on these.  Some of them not at all.  Just some really pretty papers from a 6" x 6" paper stack called Botanical Collection.

Hambo Hoedown Birthday Bash

     This week Hambo Hoedown is celebrating thier one year anniversary.  And to celebrate they are using Bailey's image.  It is called Bailey Cupcake.  Bailey is their dog.  He is a cute little guy.  It is a progressive challenge.  If you play this week then they will send you next weeks image free.  Its such a good way to get a lot of free digital images.  If you want to play along just click on the link at the top of this post. And it will take you to their site.
     For my card I printed the image of Baliey Cupcake on Mohawk paper.  I colored it with Copic Markers.  The designer paper I used is from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers 6x6 paper pad.  I love this paper.  I used my Spellbinders to cut out the ovals and the sentiment.  I added a little 3D Crystal Lacquer to the bones and also to his dog tag. I made this card size A6 (4.75" x 6.5") so it is a little bigger than my normal A2 (4.25" x 5.5") size.  I am starting to like this size more. Sense it is a larger size you can use the large Spellbinders dies easier.  The brown mat was made using my copic markers.  I didn't have the shade brown I needed so I took a sheet of white cut to size and colored the edges.  I had seen this on another site and thought it was a good idea and by gosh it worked.
