Best Buddies

I am away from my studio and I am working out of my suitcase but was delighted to find that I had the tools for a new technique as a challenge from Cinema Saturday. The movie: "Best in Show" ; the technique: paper accordian medallions. (There are links for tutorials on the challenge posting or go here.) My answer to the challenge: these little dogs with their jeweled collars are best buddies and just for fun, can be removed from their basket. I didn't have any blue paper to make a first prize rosette for these "Best in Show" dogs, so I gave them their "blue ribbon" on the basket handle and made the polka flowers for them to gaze upon while they reside in their basket. Best buddies -- Best in Show!

Maybe you should get out of the laundry room and go on the road, how creative are you, girlfriend!
Either that is the biggest suitcase on earth or we become more creative without all our Stuff!
This card is absolutely wonderful and anyone would love that the puppies can be removed! Martha you did it again............nicely done!

Martha this card is just soooo adorable. Seeing those little dogs reminded me that I have a TON of Sizzix (including this one) that just sits on my desk & haven't been touched since I bought my Cricut !!! This makes me want to grab some & use them on my cards again ...
Thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Janie
