Out of the Way. . . .card 3

If you read my post from here, this is basically the same card, but, some ingredients have changed but not much else so feel free to scroll on down to the card :)

I am lucky enough to work on a blog called Challenges for Days where we update the current challenges for people like myself who can't remember all the wonderful challenges out there.  I tell you this because there has been many times that I am updating my day {which is Saturday} and I will come across a challenge that I just HAVE to enter.  It happened this past Saturday with Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers current challenge: D is for Dogs; I love using Crazy Cats, Birds & Dogs SO much I had to break them out for this challenge :)

Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony
Sakura Gelly Roll Pens, Stardust
Premade Distress Ink Background 
 Another Peek
After the pups were stamped, colored and die cut, I used an Oxide Ink background that I had lying around from a previous creation.  I tend to make many backgrounds for a project that for some reason or another don't fit my vision and instead of throwing them out {there is nothing wrong with them except they don't work for whatever I am making} I keep them.  I have loads of Distress Oxide Ink and Alcohol Ink backgrounds ready to go at a moments notice!  
I embossed the sentiment and chose these two dogs to stand on it - to me it looks like the first dog is telling this to the second dog which is why the second pup looks so surprised.  The expressions on these, and the whole Crazy collection, is so much fun!  I hope you have enjoyed this card, as well as the other two {one is here and the other is here} and perhaps, if you aren't a snarky person, I've encouraged you to take a peek at the fun side of snark! 
Thanks SO much! I appreciate your time stopping by! Blessings, Christi
