FTL#221 - Doggy Sympathy

Sadly, I made another doggy sympathy card (hopefully it's gotten to it's recipient by now) last week for a blogging friend who lost her senior doggy too.  I used the Clean and Simple Sketch#221 for my layout.

The minute I saw the sketch - I knew I wanted to use an 'xxoo' theme and the layout was perfect.
So, I die cut my "x" and "o" from my Sizzix dies and laid them out on the card front.  I hand cut my sentiment banner using a MFT cocker spaniel stamp colored with my pencils and a Skipping Stones sentiment embossed in white.  I felt the card was still too stark - so I drew border lines around the card with my Sharpie.

Here's the sketch I followed:

Thanks for your visit!

So sorry your friend lost her dog, how nice of you to make her a card and I love the X's and O's on it.

Oh, so sorry for yet another friend of yours, Maria! Absolutely wonderful card, though! What a fabulous take on that sketch, and I really do love the sentiment. Super sweet doggy, too!

For a sad occasion but so cute! Know she'll love this. Sweet and very pretty. Love the Sharpie frame around the outside too!
