Cas(e) This Sketch #82

Today, I'm sharing the card that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #82 by N@ Ali:

Now, it might not look it, but this card was actually quite tricky 
& took me a while to complete!

I combined several sets for this card: PTI's City Scene for the buildings,
Simon Says Stamp Stylish Simon (the sweet dog I paper-pieced) &
Mama Elephant's Wanderlust for the sentiment.

The trickiest part wasn't the buildings (although I do find them quite challenging
to stamp right!), but it was making the speech bubble from the tiny speech bubble die from 
PTI's Bubble Talk dies. 
I ran it through my die cutting machine part way, then trimmed out the sides and ran
it through again to die cut the other end. 
(It took me at least five tries to get it right!)

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, July 3rd to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Fun card! I had to go check the stamp set to see if it had a zip up hoodie (love that). But didn't see one, so kudos to you for getting your dog an adorable hoodie.
