Get Well Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy and DS4J "Thinking About You" Digi

Hello to everyone reading this post.  Thanks so much for dropping by my blog.  I created this card for my brother in law.  I saw this spotted dog and had to use him on something!  LOL!  DS4J have such awesome digital stamps.  I don't know how I created before I found digital stamps.  I guess I used mostly CTMH Clear acrylix stamps.  Now I combine them to get the best of both worlds.  I know I am completely spoiled.  

You still have time to enter in the Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 97  Black and White.   I love black and white cards.  I think they look awesome.  Be sure to check out both DT teams.  Mine is on the Mid-Challenge DS4J team; but both teams have created some really gorgeous cards.  I used a border on the front and inside; with black behind it.  It doesn't look like the border I used; because I used patterned paper.   I never realized how it looked until I went to do the post.  I had forgotten to write down the border I used.  I pulled up the design on my Cricut Explore; or I would never have figured it out.  LOL!
