Outlawz July 2017 Challenge - 'Dog' by Anne Fenton.

Outlawz Progressive Challenge July 2017
Outlawz Progressive Challenge -  July 2017   -Dog card
The image for the month of July is  Dog by Anne Fenton.

The design is from Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch challenge #512 for July.
I coloured the dog with Prismacolor Markers and gave him a slightly clouded sky and   muddy ground. He just looked liked he would be be one of those  dogs that cannot resist a mud puddle. My card needed a bit of colour so colored the ball green  and the woof sentiment  was die cut from a piece of green scrap paper. The left hand border is from a Recollections paper pad titled 'Vintage Country'. The die cut scalloped type border is from Spellbinders 'Ironwork Accents' die set.

Bugaboo Christmas in July 2017 Day 5 Photo Challenge

Bugaboo  'Catch the Bug' Christmas in July 2017 Challenge  Day 5 Photo Challenge

The inspiration I felt when I saw this photo was to create something that expressed a bit of  how tiresome  winter can be,  the days when  you long for  summer as you watch the snow come down.  I also liked the colours of the umbrella and decided to use them . Hope you see a bit of humour in my interpretation. These little bird's look like they could use some relief from it all :O)! Been there, know the feeling.

Card  Details:
Image: Bugaboo's'Winter Birds on a Limb'
Sentiment: Stampin' Up's rubber stamp set 'Snowflakes'
(Warm Winter Wishes) and a hand typed sentiment at the top of the image frame.

Enjoy your summer!!  :O)!
