Hugs and Pooches Valentines Day Card

Hello Friends!!
Happy Friday!!
Today I would like to share with you a Special Valentine I made for my 
Bestest Friend Ginny.
She loves.....PUGS!!  So I thought I would design a special "Pugs and Smootches" Valentine's Day card for her.
Pin It!
You will notice that I used LOTS of fabulous ribbons from the 
January Ribbon Assortment from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon!!
Here is a close up of my ribbon cluster in the upper left of my card.
You will also see that I used some mulberry roses and a vintage button from my stash, as well as the peppermint baker's twine,  burgundy leaves red pom pom trim as well as Candi Foam pads to elevate all my layers...also from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I started out designing the back ground music paper, a bingo card from this months "Heart's Galore" ephemera from GECKO GALZ(I used gimp to create the heart shape), text boxes and cleaned up both the pug and roses images...then combined them using GIMP.  I also used GIMP to pull colors from the roses to create the music background paper.
I cut out all my pieces, including the ribbons...and inked them with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress inks!
 I did use some pink crochet laceJuliet lace, and the red shimmer ribbon, also from RRR at the bottom of the card.
I hope she loves it :0)
If you have a friend that loves pugs can get the collage sheet I designed here.
Thank you for Visiting!!


  1. FABULOUS card, and your friend will surely go gaga over it! I can't even begin to choose a favorite aspect because they all go together beautifully! Great idea to use bits of ribbon the way you do - I'm inspired to try it too! That whole button/ribbon/flowers/pearl embellishment is just gorgeous, as are the images and the way you've placed them. TFS!

  2. Now this is just too stinkin cute! Love how you pulled the colors all together, I had no idea that could be done! Your friend will adore this for sure! ~Diane

  3. Very pretty! Love your background papers and the pooch & basket of roses is so cute! Also loving the ribbon cluster!
    BOLB Hugs!
