Birthday wishes for Jim

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, my step son's birthday is on December 30th.  He will be 28 years old.  I'm still trying to get all my holiday cards done and mailed out, but wanted to make his birthday card.  This year he got a German Shepherd pup and now he is getting to be a rather LARGE dog.  I thought this was a cute image from Paper Shelter.  I used the already colored image and put another image on top for a 3-D effect on the dog.  The sentiment is from a wonderful set from TLC with 10 phrases.  I distressed the paper and inked the edges with Memento ink to give a roughed up look to go with the sassy pup.
