If you're not familiar with chihuahuas just take a look at the program "Dog Whisperer". As Cesar Millan says: "And we're changing the world, one chihuahua at the time". Emma is totally adorable but sometimes quite a little monster too, and that's why I chose this sentiment, from a set of Whimsy stamps. I stamped with black ink on kraft paper, which I tore.
I used a black pen to make the doodle lines - it's a technique I haven't used much myself, but I like the effect of it on others cards, so wanted to give it a go. I also used kraft paper for the card base and the panel for the circle - I think kraft and pink is a lovely color combination, but I rarely use pink, so I had to seize this opportunity! The pink paper for the circle is heat embossed with white embossing powder, using a brick wall stamp from Magnolia. It doesn't serve any other purpose than for me trying to reduce my scrap pile a bit, I made it for another card but ended up not using it then...
