Catered Crop-Music

Hi cats and dogs, are you ready to rock the weekend? Thank goodness my kids are grown so I don't have to think of this weekend as the end of summer, I'm NOT ready!
I need to build up my stash of masculine birthday cards. I know this is a little cute-sy but my husband really liked it passes the test.
I wanted to play in the Catered Crop Challenge "Music Expressions" and I wanted to color this A-dor-able dog illustrated by the fabulous Torico of Birdie Brown (no longer available). I got it as a freebie a year or two ago. For those of you who don't know, she designs for MFT now.

I colored the doggie with Copics, masked it, and air brushed the background. So fun! The I got out an older Basic Grey pad and made up the card using Mojo Monday Sketch 359, not the current one.
I chose those sketch because I needed a design where the circle was free to move. By that I mean I put a "action wobble" under but it was an epic fail!! It looked like a broken jack-in-the-box! So I had to stick foam dots under it to hold it down. "Frown". I really wanted my doggie to "ROCK".
The stamp is Inkadinkado wood mount from years ago.
Excuse the fuzzy photo. I took it with my phone with the last ounce of energy I had before I collapsed for the night.
