Have a Dog-Gone Good Birthday

This is a cheesy, fun card I made for my nephew for his birthday.  I could not think of anything to do for his card.  Everything that came to my mind was cheesy!  So, cheesy it is.  LOL.  I even put on the inside, "I know, it's cheesy! But we still hope you have a great birthday."

Details:

Size:  A2
Card stock:  DCWV, American Crafts
Patterned Papers: DCWV
Dog:  Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge cut at 3" (I was surprised it cut so large).  I ran the dog through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder, and I ran the background circle through the Cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday folder.
Stars:  George Cricut cartridge at 1 1/2" and 1 1/4"
I added baker's twine and then used a Fiskars border punch along the bottom.
The gems are Beads in a Bottle.

Hope you like this simple card!
