My turn to pick the challenge --- I picked shape cards......any shape but the usual rectangle/square. The above card was inspired by my sister-in-law (who doesn't have a blog -- but I wish she did!). She mentioned that she had made some Scotty Dog cards for the December card exchange at a local stamp store. I remembered the Scotty Dog chipboard book (Mary Engelbreit) I had picked up earlier this year. I used it for the pattern and added a Christmas ribbon around his neck and a brad for his eye. The other "arrangement" was made using the Martha Stewart branch punch, two little candy canes, and three red "beads." I embossed the whole dog using the houndstooth embossing folder (Provo Craft).
