I wanted to create a spring look but it had red in the edge and I didn't want it to look Valentiney (although this would be a cute look with red). So, I let the brown of his fur and the blue sky lead me. I used a spellbinder die and kraft cardstock to create the frame. I created a pleated strip of paper for the bottom of the card and inked it up to make it look older. A touch of gingham ribbon, twine and a button.
