Bitten By The Bug 2--Dachshund

It is Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team Monday. This week Melissa got to choose our challenge. She picked the Dachshund on the Paisley Cricut Cartridge. This was a fun one. I remember wanting Paisley so bad when it was announced, getting it right away, but sadly I cannot remember if I ever actually have used it. Well, now I can say YES I have! Please make sure you go on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 to see all the other creative ways my fellow Design Team has used this cute little dog :) Then make sure you play along in the challenge and make a creation of your own.
No fancy techniques here....just great Cricut cuts, some trimmer cuts and a Martha Stewart punch.
A little something different...I actually finished the inside of the card, LOL! And do the colors look familiar?? It was all made from scraps from my card set projects with Florals Embellished.
