Krafty Chicks challenge #704 - All Occasion

Hello again friends; I'm back once again with my DT card for this week's Krafty Chicks challenge.  We are on Week 4 which is 'All Occasion' i.e. birthday, sympathy, get well etc; the world's your oyster!  
I found these images already coloured from another project so thought I would put them to good use. I didn't need a specific card so just made a generic hello friend card.  Here is my card:
A close up of the cute doggies:
Plus I decorated the inside:
In addition to the images already being coloured I also had the circles pre-cut that I was going to use on another card but then changed my mind (they were all cut from pieces from my scrap bin).  I did have to cut a few extra for the inside but this card was super easy to put together once I had decided on the layout.   I cut a panel from white card 3 3/4" x 5" and added the circles randomly around (but in rainbow order) with foam squares.  I also added the cute dog images with foam squares too.  I stamped the friend and hello words in black ink and used the matching die to cut out the friend, along with another 3 from white card.  I used a tiny sentiment strip die to cut out the hello word.   I used a tip I learned from Mindy Eggen and used the extra friend die cuts to layer up the word but only used the middle part that would have contact with the card panel so that everything would be the same level.  The panel was added with double sided tape.  I didn't add any embellishments as I thought it looked cute as it was.  For the inside I used the left over pieces of the circles that I had cut off from the front and added them around my panel.  The only circles I had to cut extra were the teal one and the yellow one.  I added another dog to the inside too.  These were all added with liquid glue.  I didn't add a sentiment as I thought this card could be for any occasion and I could add one when I needed to.
