Beautiful Dog

I am making cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids For the Girls Challenge.
This may seem like a strange image for a girl's card. But keep in mind these are seriously ill girls and some of the treatments they go through can effect their self image. So anything to bring a smile to their faces and make them feel beautiful is a plus. Even scraggly dogs are beautiful.
The dog is an American Art Stamp, colored with Prismacolor pencils. I didn't have a small enough purple ribbon so I rubbed violet dye on a linen string for the bow tie. The sentiment is something I saw on a wall plaque a few years ago and have done on the computer. The polka dot papers are Bo-Bunny and the pink roses a scrap. 2 little hearts and a star sequin from SU finish it off.  To dress up the inside, I added another rose banner. I know this will cheer up a little girl especially one who owns a dog.
Speaking of dogs, have you ever watched The Puppy Bowl before the Super Bowl? It is so cute. Puppies are put in a small play area and drag toys to one end or the other to score. You just have to fall in love over and over with all those adorable puppies.
Appropriate to that subject, Just Us Girls challenge word this week is Dogs.
