Pet Sympathy

Greetings, my inky friends! I have a card today to share for a sad occasion, the loss of a pet. Sadly I've made quite a few of these in the last year. Friends of ours recently had to put down their dog Carmel, and I know how heartbroken they are. Not everyone understands how attached a human can become to an animal, and how they become part of the family. In some way I feel that a pet sympathy card shows your compassion and that you understand. At least I hope it does. 

I had all my pet themed elements together but wasn't sure on a layout, so thank you to Mojo Monday for providing the inspiration.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Paw Print Background (My Favorite Things), Pansy (Technique Tuesday) for the sympathy sentiment, Joy to the Woods (Lawn Fawn) for the little tiny hearts, Cat Print (All Night Media) for the envelope
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Crumb Cake (SU)
Ink Pads: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe (SU), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stitched Circle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Pet Accents Dies (My Favorite Things)

Thank you for visiting and I hope that you all have a wonderful day :)

Sandy, I know they will really appreciate this beautiful card. Losing a pet is heartbreaking and knowing that someone understands that and can empathize really helps. Your card is so beautifully composed and the little hearts are perfect.
