Krafty Chicks challenge #712 - CAS

Hello friends; I hope you're having a great week.  I'm here today to share my DT card for this week's Krafty Chicks challenge.  As we are on Week 3 we are looking for all your CAS (clean and simple) creations.  
Although my card isn't a typical one layer CAS card it has limited supplies, no embellishments and only the top layer is dimensional.  I hope you like it. 
Here is my card:
A closer look:
Plus I decorated the inside:
I began by die cutting the large sentiment die from a white panel that was cut to 4" x 5 1/4".  I cut another panel the same size and used a stencil to create a fun background using 3 colours of ink.  I stamped the sweet dog image and coloured him with Promarkers and used the matching die to cut him out.  I stamped a sentiment from the set onto white card with black ink and trimmed it into a narrow strip.  I added thin foam strips behind the die cut panel and added over the stencilled background.  I added the dog inside the letter B again with foam squares.  The sentiment was placed in between the BIG and HUGS words with liquid glue.  The panel was then added onto a green card base with double sided tape.  For the inside I cut a white panel 3 3/4" x 5" and using the same colours of ink lightly blended a border at the bottom.  I then stamped the dog in a pale grey ink and my sentiment was stamped in the centre with black ink.  This was added to the card base with double sided tape.  I don't often use a coloured card base but I really thought it went well with the stencilled design.

I absolutely love that stencilled background peeking through! And your decision to put your furry friend in the B was inspired! Hugs, Kate

Denise, I love this design. All that dimension looks so great and really shows off your sweet pup. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Little Red Wagon Challenge!

Your stencilled background is the perfect balance for the plain front, Denise and that little dog is so cute. A simply beautiful card.
