New Doggie

We got a new furbaby last week, so I decided I would like to make a card to send to the shelter just to say thanks for all the time and energy they put into matching me up with this little guy.  His shelter name was Keith but we decided he looked more like an Archie.  He's a 6 year old, 10lbs Yorkie/poodle mix I think but this is just a guess; it really doesn't matter because he's 100% cute and cuddly.  Perfect for spoiling!

This is his "adoptables" photo from the shelter's website.  I can't wait for his hair to grow in so we can get him a real haircut.  I also think he's gained a bit of weight since then too, just another pound to go.

(If you're looking for a new furry friend, please consider adopting from your local shelter!)

Anyway here's my card.  Please ignore the strange photos, not having white on the images making it hard to brighten it up!
And the inside of the card:
Digi:  Meljen's Designs Detective Doggie
Digital papers by Digital Freebies
Sentiment and "bone" circle from Silhouette Online Store
Twine from stash
