Perfect Pet!

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is The Perfect Pet!  Come share your interpretation of this theme and don't forget the die cut!
This is a decorative piece I made for my vet's office!  I started with a heavy piece of board and covered it with kraft paper run through a stripes embossing folder each direction to create the plaid.  I then rubbed Chocolate ink over the embossing.  

I then backed the precolored Topper from Polkadoodles Horace and Boo with some cardstock and adhered it to the backing.  I cut the pup in a black shadow cardstock and then again out of cereal box and kraft paper.  This gave him lots of dimension.  

I inked over the pup with Chocolate ink and finished it up with a teal twine bow!
