Dachshund in Love (Gerda Steiner image)

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a card I made for the progressive challenge over at Gerda Steiner Designs.  Since I participated last month, I received this month's Dachshund in Love image for free.  He's so cute!  I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils and stamped a sentiment on his heart balloon.  I'm still on a shaker card kick so I made another one!

I placed the image behind the shaker window and filled it with all kinds of sequins in red, pink, white, and gold; the red are heart-shaped.  I wanted to play along over at My Creative Time so I followed their Photo and Colour Inspiration (see below) and used My Creative Time Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to make a frame around the shaker.  The DP is from MME Love Me 6x6 pad and I added a few more heart sequins to the corners to finish it off.

I would like to support the following challenges:

P.S. - Why did the cowboy adopt a dachshund? Because he wanted to get a long little doggy. hehe (I'm sorry for my terrible humor)
