This card is for a friend who had to say goodbye to one of the sweetest and smartest dogs ever.  To me these are as hard to make as a sympathy card for a person.  I really love animals.  But I was happy with how this one worked out.  The sketch from Case This Sketch was in my mind, and it just came together.



In coming up with this card, I was looking at the gorgeous Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, and again the sketch was in my brain.  I knew the two would mesh perfectly.  Here is the sketch:


After cutting all of the DSP, I began looking for the perfect sentiment.  Surprisingly, I found it in the Rustic Retreat stamp set.  This is a winter time set, but the words were perfect.  This sweet dog was the perfect mannered one, and always walked right by my friend’s side.

The final touch was the little dog bone accessory from Playful Pets Trinkets.  It is paired with the Playful Pets Trim combo.  I used almost everything from this suite of products except the dies!
