Going in Circles at Ike'sworld Challenges

The current challenge at Ike'sworld is "Going in Circles" and I couldn't resist playing along.  Did you know that Ike actually provides a FREEBIE each time there's a new challenge?  AND, not only was there a fabulous Merry Go Round freebie on the Challenge Blog this time, but also, on the Ike's Art FB Fan page, this adorable puppy chasing his tail.  If you know me, you know kitties are my thing, but this adorable pooch is so sweet, I just had to use him for the challenge.  (Besides, I thought of a cute sentiment for him.)

Before printing him, I added a sentiment in my Printmaster Platinum program. In case you can't read it, it says "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get"  Not sure where I originally heard it, but it does make me giggle.  He's colored with Copics with some Prismacolor pencil work to bring out the fur detail. A window was cut in the top mat and popped atop the blue card base.  Then I cut my image with a smaller oval and popped them both with foam.  I added a paw print strip embellished with Cappuccino seam binding from DL.Art Supplies and some vintage buttons up top. I wanted it be appropriate for a male card so I didn't do a foofy bow.  I think it makes a cute belated birthday card with an inside sentiment like "Sorry I missed your birthday.  Hope it was Happy".
