Dogs Leave Pawprints In Our Hearts -- for Great Impressions

It's Saturday, and I'm posting for Great Impressions Stamps blog.  I poured my heart into today's piece of art.  My good friend recently lost her 15 year old Golden Retriever.  I've been wanting to come up with a remembrance piece to give her.  I wanted it to be sweet, but not too sad.  Here's it is:

I used Great Impressions rubber stamp Valentine Sparky (F600), and colored the stamped image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is a combination of computer generating and brads from Eyelet Outlet

The frame is a lot of layered pieces.  It is an SVG cutting file from My Scrap Chick. The designer paper is from Echo Park - Bark Collection.  Ribbon is 3 Girl JAM. Flowers are also Eyelet Outlet

My friend is getting her piece of artwork tomorrow.  I hope she likes it.  I sure enjoyed creating it for her!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday -- ATG
PDE Linky Party -- ATG
D.L. Art -- January Linky party

  6. Aww, this is so cool! Love how you used the nesting dies to create such an layered frame! Briliant! We are so blessed you joined our Challenge weeks ago and would love for you to join our new Challenge still ongoing at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 which says, "But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. " Have a lovely week.
