Joan's Challenge Three Flowers Doberman Sympathy

Good Evening Ladies,
It's been a long day. This is the first chance I have had to do my blog entry. I decided to give Joan's Challenge Three Flowers Doberman Sympathy a second go. You can see the challenge here...
The requirements are:
Create a blue and white background
Use three different kinds of flowers
Use two butterflies
Use a sentiment
Here is my card...
 For my blue and white background I used a pearl white mat and added a blue mat embossed with my new embossing folder from Joan's. I do not use embossing folders much. But since we have been using them for challenges I am going to try to use them more. I have been motivated by all the beautiful entries. I finally used my build a flower #1 that I purchased at Joan's to make an entire flower. My flower at the top of the card was created using a flower die by Cheery Lynn that I purchased at Joan's. The olive branches that stick out from under that flower are also cut with a Cheery Lynn die that I purchased at Joan's. The rolled roses at the bottom were created using a Sizzix die. My doberman dog is an Art Impression image that I also purchased at Joan's. Check with her she has a few dog stamps. The butterflies were also created using a Cheery Lynn die that I purchased at Joan's. Can you tell I love Joan's Garden! A crystal pearl sprig tops this card off.
This is the inside of my card.
I find shopping for a dog sympathy card is very hard as I can never find the perfect one. So making my own is a much better option.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Awwww... what a sweet card to give someone who has lost a dog. I know the person who gets this will get comfort from the beauty of the card and the kind sentiment inside, as well. Beautiful job!

What great techniques. I love how your build a flower 1 came out. Those itty bitty spikey things are fun to play with. This is a precious way to remember someone who lost their pet. Awesome sentiment!
