Winter Wonderland Ribbon and Lace

Good Morning Ladies,
I am ready for Monday to begin. Go groom the doggies!
First I have a card for you today....It is for the challenge Winter Wonderland Ribbon and Lace...you can see the challenge and enter yourself if you want...click here.... http://christmasblogchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/ribbon-and-lace.html
The challenge of course is to use ribbon and lace.
So here is my card....
 I thought about this quite a bit. How can I do a card with ribbon and lace and not create something cutesy or super delicate. I always come back to my animals. I started with bristol board. I stamped a large pine tree image from Heartfelt Creations three times. I colorized it with Prisma pencil and gamsol. I then added stickles to the tree branches on the ends and at the bottom of the panel to create snow. There was plenty of room at the top left corner to add the sentiment from CTMH. I then stamped the Australian Shepherd dog on bristol board and colorized him with prisma pencil and gamsol. I hand cut him out and popped him up on the scene. I mounted this panel on a piece of green swiss dot card stock. For my ribbon and lace I took a piece of thin lace and layered a black and white checked ribbon on top. I took this and added it to my main panel. I layered a maroon card stock panel over my card base.
This is the sentiment inside my card.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

I love this card. The lace and ribbon pull the colors of the dog. The trees are so pretty. Thanks for the inspiration.
