how much is that doggie in the window?

Whilst researching information for the joint 60th birthday card I recently made I found out that the doggie in the window song was a hit in April 1953. Hard to believe that a song I remember singing for fun as a child was once thought of as a hit pop song, and I wasn't born in the 50's I'm talking about singing it in late 60's early 70's.

This is another cutie image from Sugar Nellie and I love colouring it as it just pops to life. I fussy cut the image and simply mounted it on copy paper that I embossed using a fiskars snowflake board. I added a punched snowflake border using a martha stewart snowflake punch just to add more texture.

The sentiment is from some kit I have had ages and only have odd bits left but thought the simplicity fit the card, which I think will be perfect for one of my young nephews or the little girl next door.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
