Merry Christmas, Doggone it!

Warning!  This is the first in a series of cards for my friends dog grooming shop and who else would I go to for images, but Mo Manning! This Christmas Sheepdog (with hat) is colored with Copics and cut with Spellbinder's Labels Twelve.  The DP is K & Company Shimmer Paper and the Santa hat  has Sparkle N Sprinkle's Twinkling Clouds on the white fur.  The embellishments are just from my stash.  I won't tell you how many I colored and threw away, but that's the fun in tackling a new challenge, isn't it!
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Crafting - Traditional Christmas Colors
Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge - Sparkle & Bling
Lia Stampz - 3 R's - Red, Ribbon, Rhinestones
