This card is for two challenges. The weekly Card Patterns, sketch47 http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/2010/01/sketch-47.html and the monthly Hero Arts, Friendship and Valentines.
I was inspired by this card by Kathy: http://www.flickr.com/photos/34626929@N04/3693158546/
I have used three Hero Arts stamps: S5213 DesignBlock/Dots and Flowers, CL134 I Love My Dog and CL26 Woodland Creatures. The DesignBlock was stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Tim Holtz distress embossing powder, weathered wood. I then added Tim Holtz distress ink, frayed burlap. I wanted the background to look as if Jenny's head was breaking through. The paw prints were stamped with Versamark on craft, and the greeting was stamped with VersaMagic chalk ink, Aegean Blue. The heart was cut from Sizzix, and the photo was cut to fit. All the pappers are from my scraps so I cannot identify them. Don't you just love the "houndstooth" pattern! I then added the little bone as a bow.
