Father's Day Dogs

I have a Father's Day card to share today...featuring some Penny Black dogs from a set called 'Dog-gone Sweet!' I coloured the images using watercolour pencils, then fussy cut them out. For the background, I embossed a piece of plain-ish brown paper (from the 'Awesome Boy!' pad by Recollections/Michaels) using my 'Bone & Paw Prints' folder by Crafts Too...sanding over the surface to reveal some of the white core. I distressed the edges a little, then added a sentiment (chopped in half!) from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts.
