My card today was created for a friend who had to put her beloved dog down this week. We have a dog and I can only imagine how difficult this must be for her.

I began by creating the background layer, stamping the dog paw and bone with Memento Cocoa ink on cream CS. To create a divide between them I added the strip of brown CS with a ribbon. The puppy was stamped with Memento Cocoa ink, colored with Copics, die cut with a stitched oval from ODBD and layered on a brown oval also die cut from ODBD stitched oval dies. The sentiment was stamped the same way, die cut, some cocoa ink sponged on the edges. A dog paw button completes the look. I'm pretty sure my friend will like. I hope it cheers her up a bit too.

I'm entering this in this week's Addicted to CAS challenge: Stitch.

Thanks for stopping by,
