Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope all are well. I had some dental work done yesterday and boy am I ever sore. My mouth feels raw and my jaw hurts to move it. I guess that means less talking. LOL! it is time for a Wags n Whiskers challenge. We hope you enjoyed the little break at our Wags n Whiskers challenges, but that you are ready to get back to another challenge!!

Now it's time for our new challenge. This week's challenge is hosted by Karen and her challenge is: Punch it!! Add a punched or die-cut element.
As always, you must use a WnW stamp on your card to be entered into the drawing for ONE FREE Wags 'n Whiskers STAMP OF YOUR CHOICE!

If you would like to be a guest for our next challenge, please add DT after your name when you enter this week's challenge.

Speaking of Design Teams and Guests, did you know that Wags n Whiskers is currently having a DT call? Make sure to check out this post for more details.

Before I go to my creation, I also wanted to mention that today Wags n Whiskers is releasing the last two stamp releases as digital stamps!! Now you can purchase the Fun in the Sun and Let's Play sports release as digital stamps!

O.k. now on to my creation....
I used the Wags n Whiskers image: Joy Ride for my card. I used a fern stamp from SU for my background tree. The rest of the background is sponged with ink. The ribbon is celery silk ribbon. Much of the SEI dp is embossed. I punched my border along the bottom with MS Shells border punch. The layout uses the sketch from Papertake Weekly.
