S.o.S. Card Chain Challenge August

This month the Society of Stamp and Scrap-aholics Card Chain Challenge has thrown me for a loop, but I persevered and this is the end result:
Augusts Challenges were:


and/or THEME -
Middle-Eastern - in honor of the Ramadan Holiday
Dogs - in honor of National Dog Day
or Friendship - National Friendship Day was August 1st
So my 2nd Card was my version of the Dog and Sketch and Color challenges:
I rolled on the background in Versamark, then stamped and embossed the truck, stamped and hand colored the dogs & the crazy woman driver, then rolled the background again and highlighted the doghouse. I loosely interpreted the sketch with my token single strip, and the descending circles. In real life this actually a happy sweet card, that purple photographs very blah here I think.

And this insane contraption of a card is for the Ramadan challenge, with an attempt at color challenge. Its a slide out card that replicates the phases of the moon, in honor of the timing of the holiday Ramadan (at the crescent moon, the holiday is governed by the Lunar calendar.)

This is the card fully closed. There is not much room for a message, but the back of the card could be used.
