Howling at the Moon


This card  was created for Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge #71:  Shaped Card.  This is actually the first card that I have made that is not square or rectangle.  I must admit, if it were not for this challenge, I probably would not have made a round card.  I find it's quite difficult.  The image is from Digi Doodle Shop.  It comes in a set of two wolves.  I just love the animal digis on the website.  I recently ordered quite a few more. I colored the sky and the moon with Stampin' Up ink. The wolf is colored with Copics.  I masked the wolf and moon to sponge the sky.  Then I cut the moon off the mask to sponge the moon.  The sentiment came from a huge box of candy I recently won.  Thank you, Audrey.                                                                                                  
I am entering this in the following challenges:

Wow, wow, wow. Diane I LOVE this card. I've had these wolves forever, but wasn't sure how I would use them. This is perfect. I would never have known that you hadn't been doing shaped cards for years. The round really works with the moon and sky background. Hugs, dj
