Paw Prints Have Been Left On Your Heart

I'm back!  I'm feeling much better, with only a little cough hanging on.  I really needed to make this pet sympathy card for a co-worker who lost her greyhound last week.  The dog had a dental procedure and when he was waking up, something happened to his heart, and he passed away.  So sad!  And this gal has had her share of tough times lately.  She lost her other greyhound less than six months ago, and she had surgery about six weeks ago for early stage lung cancer.  So, she is in my thoughts and prayers, and hopefully this card will brighten her day.

The card is an A2 sized card.  Here are the supplies I used:

Patterned papers:  Linen Closet DCWV stack
Cardstock:  Recollections kraft
Gems:  Studio 8?
Pawprint:  Paper Pups Cricut cartridge
Flower:  A button from my stash
Ribbon:  ??
Sentiment:  Harrington font
Punches for sentiment:  Stampin' Up
Border punch:  EKSuccess

Thanks for your patience with me, and for your comments!
