Male Birthday Card with Dogs

I've used part of a DP as focal image for this card. I like how the "daddy dog" wears his crown, it was my inspiration for adding the heat embossed stamped crown as embellishment and using a dark bronze colored paper as background. For the background paper I used an embossing folder with script. I chose a layout inspired by the "Seize The Birthday" sketch. I heat embossed the sentiment (meaning "Wishing you a day filled with smiles and laughter" in Norwegian) with brown embossing powder. I used 2 different DPs for the panels. All edges have been inked with Walnut Distress Ink. I finished off my card adding a bronze colored metal charm.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Seize The Birthday - Sketch #13 Masculine Birthday
2) Sisterhood of Crafters - Animal
3) Whimsical Designs - Embossing
4) Anything Goes Challenge - #90 Heavy Metal
5) Cupcake Craft - Cats and/or Dogs
6) Gingerloft - For The Guys
7) Aud Sentiments Challenge - For A Guy
8) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
