365 Cards - Day 248 - Ad Inspired

Yeah, it's time for another wonderful Wednesday challenge at 365 Cards! I go to pick an ad to be inspired by for today's challenge (and with a little help from my mom) here's the ad I used
The ad is from ArtPaw and though it's kinda hard to tell those pictures above the bed are of a dog! I loved the colors of this scene and was inspired by those for my card above. I also mimicked the headboard in the texture and color of the mat around the image (I actually cut out the tan mat and placed the image behind it). I also thought the pattern on the paper was similar to that on the pillow. I used a little artistic license to add the pops of red. The adorable image is from Designed2Delight digi stamps and is called "Believe". Who can pass up a winking dog?!?
Used some scraps and border punches to finish the inside. Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - relish to embellish
2. Alota Rubber Stamps - tag, you're it
3. Anything Goes Challenge Blog - the letter B: the pearl snowflakes are buttons
4. City Crafter Challenge Blog - get your digi on
5. Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - ribbon, gems, at least  one paper embellishment: I'm considering the pearl snowflakes as my "gem" and the paper tag my paper embellie
6. CREATIVE BELLI BLOG - flocking/flower soft: used a bit of white flower soft on the hat
7. Critter Sketch Challenge Blog - Christmas
8. Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - Christmas Digital image
9. digital tuesday challenge - I've been framed + digi: the image is actually framed by the tan mat...kinda hard to tell in the pic
10. For Fun Challenges  - metal: I have two metal eyelets on this one
11. Incy Wincy Designs - anything goes
12. Iris's Spot - anything goes
13. Lexi's Creations - anything goes
14. Mark's Finest Papers – Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge - holiday card
15. Mojo Monday - sketch: the image panel is a removable bookmark!
16. One Stop Craft Challenge - anything goes 
17. Paper Playtime - use a clock, ticket, or tag
18. The ABC Challenge - G is for glitter: the white scalloped panel is glitter paper
19. The Crazy Challenge - pearls and swirls
20. The TownScrapper - buttons: the pearl snowflakes are buttons
21. Totally Stampalicious - red bow
22. .. wee Memories .. - free for all
23. Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog - create a bookmark

That's all for today and can't wait to see how you were inspired by the ad!
Aloha,

What an inspiration you are and what a cute, cute card. Love the winking dog, sure makes a happy, cheerful Christmas card. Now, if you could catch a picture of Malie winking, with a Santa cap on, you have your Christmas card! Wouldn't that make a G'ma proud? Yes, it would! Have a great day...

Love, SAM aka MOM
