Pugs and Smootches Valentine

Hello Friends!!
Happy Friday!!
Heather here and 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.
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, bingo heart, 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 lace, Juliet 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!!
