CHNC challenge 577

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 577 - please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'feature a creature (any animal}'.

This was a commissioned card requested by a friend whose relatives have a dog she calls her 'Grandog'. There was a photo of him with a floppy sun hat on, so I found a digital picture of a similar dot, put a digital hat on him and created the background with the sentiment. This was then printed out and matted on to gold mirror card with the addition of the poinsettias.

This is also for:

ABC Christmas January: A is for anything Christmas
The holly and the ivy 107: anything Christmas goes
