Ruff Day?

A sweet Pretty Pal, Carla, recently had to put her dog Yogi down.  Being a huge animal lover and having gone through that myself, I know how hard it is to lose one of your furry four-legged family members.  I made this card for Carla to let her know I was thinking of her.

Stamps:  Ruff Day (retired)
Paper:  Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, White (non-SU)
DSP:  Soft Suede
Ink:  Black, Soft Suede
Accessories:  brads (non-SU), Octogon Nestabilities, Marina Mist ribbon, eyelet (non-SU), DMC thread, Prisma Markers
All products are SU unless otherwise noted. 
  • On the sentiment, after it was run through my Cuttlebug, I left the saying in the octogon Nestie and just lightly sponged around the edges.  I really like this effect.  I saw Gina K. do this and fell in love with the look.
  • While looking through my stash of brads, I came across these brads and it was a perfect Marina Mist match.  I was so psyched!
  • I have to say that I think Ruff Day was one of the cutest dog stamp sets that Stampin' Up made. This pup is so darn cute!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Adorable card with a perfect layout, Pam, and so sweet of you to send it! This is one of my all-time favorite SU! sets, and one that I would have loved to have owned.
