Crafty Cardmakers First Challenge of 2017 - New Beginnings

Happy New Year!  Welcome 2017.  
Crafty Cardmakers is back in the New Year with a lot of new and exciting Challenges for you.  This week's challenge is New Beginnings.  Please interpret it as you will, just please make it clear what is "new".  Looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations.

Here is my design for this challenge:
 Isn't this pup delightful?  He is "I'm so Cute" from Penny Black.  I used copics to color him.  This smile stamp is from Honey Bee Stamps.  I cut it out with my Brother Scan and Cut 2.  To add interest and texture, I embossed the card base and added twine.  The sentiment was computer generated.  

I am very pleased how this turned out.  I am going to give this card to my daughter for her birthday.  She has a new pup coming to her home next week.  A little Golden Doodle.  I think this stamp could pass for a Doodle and I love the sentiment.

I am entering the following challenges:
Penny Black and more Challenge - Anything Goes
Penny Black and Friends Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes

Have a beautiful week!
