Handcrafted Easel Card

I came up with an idea to combine two of my favorite Hero Arts sets:  My Monthly Hero January 2019 kit and Hero Arts Fun in the Rain.
The Paper Company Football Paper
The pup from this set looks like my mini-Aussie so I colored her with markings like my "Scout".  I think it is so cute that she has a raincoat on and I thought this would be perfect for a Spring card.

Since this is an easel card, I die cut some thick leathery textured paper from The Paper Company.  I used black paper to simulate a blackboard and then heat embossed with a bold birthday sentiment to get that chalkboard look.

I am really pleased with the way this card came together.

I am entering this card in:

A Blog Named Hero Embossing Challenge

Cardz4Guyz "Let's Get Messy" - For me, I always make the biggest mess with embossing powder.  No matter how neat I try to be, little bits of powder wind up all over my work surface!

The Male Room "Spring" Challenge - This cute pup is sporting her raincoat for the spring showers.
