Calvin - SG16

This super cute image is from the Character Cafe - check out there store HERE. If you want to pick up Calvin go HERE. He is a digi image and there are 4 of him in the set (one is not enough). I decided he looked like a Springer Spaniel, so that is how I colored him. I popped him up and then popped up his little buddy with some foam dimensionals. I can't say enough about this beautiful set (I am swooning over it) and printed up 2 sheets of him. He was easy to color and love how he turned out. - his nose even has a little pink in it!

Close up of his cute mug:

I do have to give my self a woot, since I used some old gingham and a bone paperclip I picked up at least 3 years ago - and I used it! I have never used the paperclips, not because I was hoarding but I forgot I had it. The gingham I haven't used in a few years, mostly because I no longer love it.

Here is the sketch - I took liberties with the center panel by using 2 horizontal sections rather than 2 vertical sections. I created this by stamping and sponging on white cardstock to create a living room for Calvin and his best buddy to lay on. The circles are the dot spot and with a little extra pop with the paper clip embellishment.

Make sure you check out what the other gals created and stop by the Sketch Girl blog to play along --The Character Cafe is offering a $10 gift certificate to her store to the SG16 winner.
