Sweet Puppy Love - Valentine

I did my final Valentine (I think), this one for my oldest daughter Kaitlyn.  She is a HUGE dog lover and the color pink, so naturally I had to incorporate those elements in her Valentine.  I think the little puppy dog on the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge is just too cute so I had to use it.  In fact, I only used the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge and I've had this cartridge for who knows how long and have NEVER used it.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Design Studio
  • Sweethearts Cricut cartridge (which I've had forever and I Never used it before)
  • craft, pink, and grey card stock
  • pattern paper
  • heart brads - on the corners and used as dog tag
  • misc. chipboard (which I've had forever) - the flower and heart
  • gem - on the flower chipboard
  • Google eyes
  • brown ink - for the edges of the dog and chipboard
  • Cuttlebug
  • Swiss Dots embossing folder - for the large pink heart
Here are some close ups:

 This is where I thought a little sparkle was needed:

Here you can see the grey collar and the heart brad I used to look like a dog tag!

Then the perfect phrase to go along with the Valentine:

I am entering this Valentine in the following challenges:
