Love your Pet!

You know that when there are pet themed challenges, I'm going to be all over that!  This card is especially pet themed because I laid a bunch of scraps I had from my 6x6 Snap pad on the floor and said "Sophie, which color should I use?" and the first two she picked were the teal and red.  (Never fear, I made sure they would ALL coordinate with each other before I let her choose!)  I matted them together and then put on a dog cut from Paper Pups that always reminds me of Sophie, because she loves to run around like crazy.   We call it "The Zoomies," and she actually stopped me while I was making this card to entice me into a round of chasing her around the house while she zipped and zoomed around. 

The washi tape underneath the main image is from Queen and Co.  Then below that is a stamp from the "Furry Friends" stamp set by Pink by Design.  I put three gems in the other corner to try to balance it out, and voila: a Sophie inspired card.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:

Craft with Cutters- Love your pets
Fantabulous Cricut- Fun with Puns
Exploring Cricut- Love your pet

PS: Here's a picture of Sophie.  You literally cannot photograph her running, because she's too fast.  So most pictures I have are when she's lying still.  This is the bed I bought her for the craft room, because we spend so much time in there, and the dog blanket that she got from my sister for Christmas. :)
