Puppy birthday card for a boy

I really need to go back to Hobby Lobby... I don't have boy paper!!  Oh well!  I did the best I could with what I have.   ;-) 

This is for my kids to give to a little friend who will soon have his 4th birthday.  Since I HAD to  make a card, I figured I might as well make it for some challenges... 5!!!

Fantabulous Cricut - birthday card
BBTB2 -dachshund from Paisley cart (or any doggie... which I had to do)
Tuesday Morning Sketches - K.I.D.S. (Keep It Delightfully Simple with a kid theme)
Birthday Sundaes - anything goes birthday with birthday words/greeting on front
                           (this is their 1st challenge... go check it out!)
Cuttlebug Spot - buttons
~ 4 x 9 card
~ DCWV paper for background
~ Basic Grey for dog
~ dog from EPD cut at 3 1/2" and shadowed
~ 'happy birthday' from Doodletype cut at 2 1/2" and shadowed
~ buttons

Thanks for looking!!  If you like challenges, check out all these good ones!  (Then you'll end up  like me... making cards when I should be marking my kids tests!!!)
