Spotllight Card

KCUK's two Septesmber challenges are a spotlight challenge and an Autumn challenge, I've made a card to fit both challenges.

It was my Wedding Anniversary this week, 31 years, so my challenge card is also for my Anniversary. Every morning hubby and me are out of the house by 6.30 for our two mile dog walk, we have two black cocker spaniels that's why I've added the dogs to the card. I love this Sheena Douglas image of the couple walking arm in arm, sharing the umbrella, unfortunately our walking arm in arm days are over, our walking sticks would get in the way, lol.

For the background I brayered some acrylic paint onto card. I stamped the main image twice and die cut part of one image then I coloured it in and adhered it to the main image matching the pattern.
I adhered the image to the background and added the bakers twine then I adhered it to a white card blank.
I stamped the two dogs and cut them out and adhered them to the card and added some die cut leaves and sentiments.

I used the following stamps
Sheena Douglas for the main image.
Katselkraft for the dogs.
Creative Expressions for the sentiment at the bottom.
Woodware for the Happy Anniversary.

I used a Spellbinders die for the shape and Tattered Lace Dies for the leaves.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges
