Cocker Spaniel

 I absolutely loved coloring this card.  I really do like coloring animals the best.  I get so much enjoyment out of it.  I made this card for My Time to Craft's latest challenge, Delightful Dogs.  I found this digi at Just Inklined,  I figured this would be ideal for a male birthday card.  My brother, Tony's, birthday is coming up in September.  I guess I'll save this for him.  He loves dogs.  He had a cocker spaniel, named Buddy (I think),  for many years.

I used Nestabilities dies.  The twill  ribbon is from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I believe the paper is from K & Company and I colored this with Copics.

Copics:  E31, E33, E34, E35, E51, E53, E97, G20, G21, G24, R20, R22, Y17
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
