Snowy look a like!

Hi everyone, I'm still playing with my new dog die, although some of the other new toys are beckoning to me!
My boys used to read Tintin books when they were younger and one of them said this wee dog looked like Snowy!

I think this card fits the mixed media challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

I looked up the guidelines as it's not a style I do very often. Stamps, ink and 2 other methods of adding dimension.
So the sentiment, which is from one of the sets I was lucky enough to win at Happy Little Stampers, covers the first part. I've used snow tex paste to add texture to the dog and an embossing folder to add interest to the base card. 

I'm also adding another entry to the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

In addition to the collar and stars, the tartan ribbon is a scrap I saved from a christmas cake we received! I had to cut the width in half as it was too wide to thread through the tag, some glossy accents at the base will hopefully stop it fraying.

Edited to add: I'm also linking up to the anything goes challenge at Happy Little Stampers anything goes challenge. Thanks Kylie!
