Mo's "In The Doghouse" Challenge

The dog days of summer have arrived in Texas.  It is too hot to spend much time outdoors so I got my craft stuff out and made this mixed media card for Mo's Challenge #145 - In The Doghouse.
I am also trying out to be a Guest Designer on Mo's Design Team. The competition is stiff but I am giving it my best shot.

I am a self-taught crafter and I have had so much fun making cards over the past couple of years. I am very humble and honored to participate in this contest.

This is how I made this card:
(1.) I started with a blank kraft greeting card that measures 5" by 6 1/2".
(2.) I layered coordinated patterned cardstock, cork, burlap and corrugated cardboard on the card. I used rubber cement and glue dots to attach the elements to the card.
(3.) I used the digital stamp "Bronte and Louis" from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop. I colored the image with Copic sketch markers. I highlighted the hair with a white gel pen and used chalk to tone down the white background.
(4.) I embellished the card with three punched flowers.
