Seize the Birthday

I needed a birthday card for my Brother-in-law this month and I decided to enter it in the Seize the Birthday Challenge too.  The toppings are "Animals!"

Ha ha ha!  I can't stop laughing about this card.  I hope he thinks it funny too. 
This is the Birthday Beagle from Art Impressions.  It is a front and back, but I think I may have used it the wrong way.  This is what I wanted to accomplish, a happy dog wagging his tail on the front.........

And you see him on the inside with a chewed up gift in his mouth.

I used Steel Gray card stock from MFT
Design paper from my stash
Art Impression Birthday Beagle
Sentiment is computer generated
Colored with Copic markers and Wink of Stella
Simon Says Happy Birthday die in scraps of red card stock
MFT Cross-Stitched Circle dies
Black Dots from my stash

Thanks so much for the lovely comments I am very much encouraged by them.  Thank You!


  1. Aaaaw, such a cute card! Love the black and white with a pop of red!
    Thanks so much for joining the fun over at Seize the Birthday!

  2. Adorable. Love the open front of the card and that stamp is too cute. Sure to bring a smile to BIL.

  3. That card will be so loved...and every time he checks it out he will be grinning. I know it made me grin so I know it will make him feel happiness from it. I think that image can work either inside image or outside one.

  4. Poor little guy looks like he got punished since he's seating with his back at us! He's so stinking cute and I'm sure your brother will get a kick out of it too!

  5. Oh, how cute!! I love how this little guys is peeking through the front of the card. I have never seen anything like this. Love your background paper and the die cut greeting too - your brother-in-law will LOVE this!!!

  10. OMGosh! This is the most precious and adorable sweet little card I have ever seen! It has our 'Hank' written all over it! He loves to grab tissues/papertowels/toiletpaper--from the roll thankfully.....and then we get to chase him all over, nothing like sticking your fingers in a dogs gooey mouth trying to scoop t all out! LOL Your card is just too stinkin' cute! Love that Designer Paper and your HB die cut! This is just FUN!
