It's Tuesday again and time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!  I cannot wait to share my card with you for this week's challenge and show you the design team's creations!  

This week's sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in between.  Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following week's sketch each Friday.
"YOUR CHOICE"
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us!

This is my card for this week's challenge, "Terrier Dog"


This was such a fun image to work with,  especially for a dog lover!  I used Basic Grey's "Olivia" collection and knew immediately I had to paper piece that adorable doggie coat.  I also used a snow marker so I could puff out the pile trim.  I even decided to to machine stitch my card.  Other supplies used:  Copic markers, Spellbinders dies, EK Success border punch, MS punch and Cuttlebug embossed buttons.
