Birthday Beagle

The challenge ...  to make a male card and it has to be anything BUT square!  I found this challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz.  I had to try it as I'm very much in the habit (when I am crafting!) is to make all my cards square, and to avoid anything other than female birthdays or general good wishes.  So I thought I would give this a try with Birthday Beagle from Whipper Snapper.  Coloured with Lyra Aquacolor crayons.  And using a teepee card as a base.

The teepee is made from three 10cm x 10cm squares of cardstock (Stampin' Up! Island Indigo).  The balloons are on thin strips of acetate so they can move. I used a Signo Uniball white gel pen just to highlight his nose and the shine on the balloons.
