Being Sick is Ruff!

Here is the project I am entering into the Fabtabolous Cricut weekly challenge.
Challenge #36 Achoo!

(I used three blue rhinestones)

Blue is, by far, my favorite color

I made this "Get well soon" Cup a Soup packet. It is the same design that I used to make a Hot Chocolate card last week. This week, I am changing it up a little bit and it becomes a "Being Sick is Ruff" card.

I used Cloud 9 paper called "travel stripe"

Here is the project all opened up. As you can see the cup-of-soup packet attaches at the top with two holes (I used my crop a dile, but any hole puncher will do) and tie a bow with ribbon to hole the packet. 

On the inside, I added more of the Cloud 9 patterned paper and a MS photo corner punches as the message portion of the card. I added black stitches (yeah, I'm kind of addicted) and a Scrappy Mom's stamp from "Everyday Greetings."

Here is a couple close-ups of the front.  I added a sentiment I made on my computer (attached with pop-dots), the dog is from Create a Critter (Dalmatian cut at 3") also attached with pop-dots.

And I added some rhinestones for some sparkle, one on his collar, and three up the left side of the card front.

Here are the dimensions for this project:
Card body: 4" x 11" - scored and folded at 1" and 6 1/4" 
Front mat: 3 3/4" x 4 1/2"
Inside mat: 3 3/4" x 4 1/2" 
Ribbon: about 10"

Do you need to add this cute card to your emergency stash?? 
It's for sale in my Etsy store.
