"Smile" Doggy Card

I just had to fit in a card today.  I didn't have a lot of time to craft but I couldn't resist this little puppy!
I saw a design team member over at Fantabolous Cricut use this doggy from Paper Pups and instantly had this card in mind. I cut the pup at 3 1/2", but I cut his main layer three times, once in the light brown, once in yellow (for his duck floaty) and once in orange (for the beak). He's attached to the card base with pop dots.

All of the paper I used came from my scrap bin, the blue circle remind me of pool water or bubbles. :)  I added an embossed "smile" sentiment from my stash. Even the thick blue sheer ribbon is from my scrap bin.

I added just a few white doodle lines to the brown back ground layer.  Glossy Accents give the dogs nose some wonderful shine while some flat back adhesive black pearls add the perfect eyes for both the dog and the duck.

The oval card base (welded on my Gypsy) measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"... I grabbed this oval from Preserves, but you could use any oval you'd like.  I sized the additional layers to 4"x 5 1/4" and 3 3/4" x 5".
