'Doggy Pile' shaker card

Evening Everyone
I made this card for Lorraine to give to her friend.
She actually wanted 'Real dogs' but the best that I could come up with was cute, and boy are they ever lol.
The main image is a lovely Whipper Snapper stamp called 'Doggy Pile' which I have coloured using distress inks.
No self respecting doggy card would be without a tree, so I added one X9623 Magnolia Tree.
I decided to make it into a shaker card.
The fence is a DooHickey with a Martha Stewart icicle punch to create the grass.
The paw prints and bones are from a Penny Black sticker sheet and the greeting was printed out on my computer, just as Lorraine requested.
The birthday greeting on the front of the card was stamped and embossed using letters and greetings from 2 different clear stamp sets.
I am really enjoying the challenges that Lorraine has given me lately. She is already planning what she wants for her Dad's birthday card, and Father's Day, and a wedding in August...... I can see I am going to have to get my thinking cap on.
Have a good weekend filled with Crafting.
