Dachshund Through The Snow

Good morning!
Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and that Santa brought you lots of what you wanted. If he didn't, well I hope that it was still a great time with your loved ones. We got an extra Christmas present, my eldest grandson caught Chicken Pox from his younger brother!!
Anyway, over at Cardz4Guyz we've got a brand new challenge for you to keep you busy in the twixtmas period!!
This time we would like to see your take on:-


Here's my take. I made it before the holidays when there was a hard frost and the overnight temperature on the roof,  according to the solar hot water panel, was down as low as minus 11'C!!!!! As I type, there are still plenty of frosty corners that the sun doesn't reach. I've used this fun LOTV digi- Dachshund Through The Snow, the doggie reminds me of our Max, though not a dachshund nor would he let you put a coat on him! 

The background was lurking in my scraps box, leftover from an earlier project and too good to throw away, works well with this cute boy with his dog and sledge from LOTV.
If I remember correctly, I stamped an arrangement of tree branches with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. Using some Salty Ocean, Blue Print Sketch and Peacock Feathers DI more branches were stamped over. When dry I blended some of the Salty Ocean over the embossed and stamped branches.
After printing off this cute LOTV image, I coloured with Copics and fussy cut him and the pooch out, laying him on pads over the background. A sentiment from Uniko was stamped on the snow and then the whole panel was added to an A6 note card.
