Who Let the Dogs Out...

Tell me it isn't just can't little baby boy turned 22 yesterday. How did he get so old? And if he's that old what does that make me....depressed? lol O.K....maybe not depressed, but certainly wondering where all the years have gone. I remember the day....o.k., sorry...we won't go on that trip down memory lane. Suffice it to say that it sure doesn't feel like 22 years have passed. When trying to come up with a card for him I looked everywhere...and then remembered when I first started with CDAC I found...and bought (yes, this was when we still had money lol)....the most incredible wolf image. My ds is nuts about wolves, so what could be better? So my first problem was what colors do I do? The image is done in black and white...sounds good to me. So I have my colors, but how to color this image? Well, I just went for it...and it turned out not too bad.
The base is made with white metallic paper from my local craft store Bartell's. The black and white cs as well as the ribbon are from Michaels. I wanted to have the circle in the background to make you think of a moon behind the wolves. I colored the wolves in shades of browns, greys and white. The rocks and tree stumps are also colored in a different shade of grey from the wolves.

CS - Michaels
DP - White metallic
Ribbon - Modern Home from Michaels
Flat backed pearls - Recollections
Colored with Prisma Scholar and oms
