Exploring Cricut and More Paper Pups Thank You Card

Good morning and happy Sunday! Today I have a thank you card I made 
for a special friend. I paper pieced several of these quilted patterns
using scraps from a K & Company paper pack  while back and never got 
around to making cards with them.  I started by punching out a bunch of 
squares  and gluing them side by side. Using the center point feature on my 
Cricut I cut out the top note shape. I then ran them through my Cuttlebug. 

I was so happy to get my Paper Pups cartridge when Cricut brought it back 
from retirement.  I just love this cartridge! I cut the pup out at 2.0", I added 
some brown pearls for her eyes, and used glossy accents for the nose. I tied
 a ribbon around the bone and added buttons!

I hand cut the banner and stamped it with my Jaded Blossom Stamps. 
The pup on the inside is cut at 1.75" and I used a little butterfly sticker. 
The inside sentiment is also from Jaded Blossom Stamps.

I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by and visiting today!
I will participate in the following challenges:

Hope you have a blessed day!
