Not quite 101!

Horrible weather today...chucking it down with rain and very cold...a perfect day to spend in the craft room! I'm finding it helps at the moment, starting to be able to concentrate on what I'm doing for a bit longer.
Anyway, I've been wanting to play along with The Library Challenge for some time now and I've finally got around to making a card. The challenges are all  based on books and this time it's 101 Dalmatians ...I so wanted a dalmatian when I first read this book! 
I used a Tim Holtz crazy dog stamp and did a lot of masking to create this card, there aren't 101 of them but you get the idea! The sentiment is computer generated and I didn't have any black/white spotted dp so I punched the 'spots' from white card and stuck them onto the black.

Thanks for visiting

- mine is definitely the dog, they are wonderful animals, intelligent (usually!), faithful and fun, they come in all shapes and sizes-something to suit everyone!- and they make the best pets...a house is not a home without a dog!

Just so many clever ideas on this card! I love the way you've coloured one dog black -with-white-spots and made the sentiment to match! Love how you've made your spotty paper. Just great. Thanks for joining The Library.
