Happy Barkday! (ISSC30)

Oh my goodness two cards in one day....something must be wrong horribly wrong :).  Just kidding, I finally have time!  Yesterday, I took a bunch of pictures of cards I've made recently, and I just had to share.

The following sketch, to say the least, was a bit daunting.

I knew what I wanted to do for this challenge but I wasn't sure if I could pull it off.  I made an oval lever card with some amazing paper I just purchased.  Lets just say at first I hated it and thought it was way to crazy.

Okay so imagine it without the cute puppy.  You can't?  Well just cover him up with your hand and take a look.....I thought it just looked terrible (without him) but I decided to forage ahead (I spent too much time trying to line up those darn stripes to toss it.....yet).  I added that adoreable puppy and "aaaaahhhhh" (imagine angels singing) instant love.

Here is the inside after you pull the side and the oval flips:

I hope you learn to love it like I do now!

(Do you see my screw up?  Yeah, that pesky the middle..cut in half. It gets lost in the fold, I was hoping for a seamless front of the card, oops crappy planning on my part.  I thought I had it right......c'est la vie:))

I'm entering this card in the iSpy Sketches - ISSC30 Challenge and the Young Crafters Unite - Challenge #13 Hot Trends!
