Pop-Ups and Puppies Dreamweaver Style!

The Stampendous Design team has been having fun all week with TWO great challenges: Pop Ups and Puppies for our weekly Stampendous theme, and a blog hop with Linnie Blooms design team (be sure to go to the Stampendous blog to check out the details...there are prizes involved!) If that wasn't enough to keep us busy, we can't forget our Dreamweaver Thursdays!
Today I am combining Dreamweaver Thursday and the Pop Ups and Puppies theme in this fun Graduation card. Yes, it's that time of year when we all need a few of these cards around.

The front of the card, featuring LL3003 Hot Air Balloon, Regular Embossing Paste, inks,
and the "It's your day!" from Soaring Sentiments SSC1170
Another balloon floating in a sky of fluffy clouds created with the Picasso tool LL332,
another saying from Soaring Sentiments, and Congratulations from the Say It Today set SSC1190,
but the main character is the darling Dreamweaver Dog stencil LL3029, paste embossed with Matte Black,
sprinkled with Stampendous aged ochre embossing enamel while the paste was wet, heated when dry,
a little Gold Micro glitter on his collar, a cute graduation hat and gold tassel finish it all off!
A closer look at our graduate
A simple little square to pop him up!
With three different challenges today, there will be a lot of variety so be sure to stop over at these designers blogs for more fun inspiration:

Happy Creating,

What a cool card! I love the hot air balloons! They add a lot of color and texture. Great clouds too.
