Gerda Steiner Designs Card

I love progressive challenges! Everyone wins since anyone who plays along gets a new stamp FREE to play with the next month. It's so fun to see what the new month's stamp will be! This month on Gerda Steiner's challenge blog, the image is a darling puppy asleep with an adorable mouse! So sweet!
To start my card, I imported Gerda's digital stamp into my Silhouette Studio Design software and did a trace so I could color these little guys. After coloring them, I moved the original stamp back into place and combined the colored image with its outline. Then I sized it and printed it. I wanted to use some dies to cut it out, so I didn't do a print and cut this time. I also chose a verse I thought went well with this image and printed it out for the inside of the card. The dies I used were all Spellbinders dies: Respendent Rectangles, Romantic Rectangles 2, and Radiant Rectangles. The verse was from the Word Art Wednesday website. I love the beautiful weekly verses they provide for free.
I wanted a little something to add a bit of interest to the front of the card, so I used an epoxy sticker and 3 pearls. I used foam squares to pop up the black mat, the puppy image, the burgundy mat and the verse inside the card.

 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
