Caardvarks - Don't Quote Me But... & Card Patterns #13

This is a card I made for my friend who adopted a sweet puppy yesterday. He's a mix of German Shepard and Golden Retriever and just a cute as can be.

I am entering two card challenges~
Caardvarks "Don't Quote Me But..." and Card Patterns Sketch #13, a great site I just found from perusing some one's entry (don't remember who, sorry :( but when I find it again, I will mention her name here).

Card Details: Base card is "Honeydew Polka Dot", the green & white stripe scalloped mat is a note card from Victoria Elizabeth. The flower patterned paper is from AC Moore. The puppy stamp is from See D's 262 Stamp Set. If you zoom in on the dog's collar, you will see 'studs' I added (cute :o) The black & white gingham ribbon is American Crafts , the silk flower from a bunch also bought at AC Moore. The inside paper is white with various sized green and pink polka dots. Sentiment written on my computer with the dark green ink same as quote on the outside of the card. I think this came out really cute, whadda ya think?
