Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs Valentine

Hello and Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!!
As a major lover of all things Graphic 45, I have created a card using one of my all-time favorite collections, Raining Cats & Dogs!
For my card I used the following:
Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs
 6X6 Patterns & Solids
12x12 Paper Pack 
Journaling and Ephemera Cards
Banners Pack
Chipboard Pack
Cardstock in aqua and rust colors
Black and white gingham ribbon
Aqua flowers
Aqua stick-on pearls
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - rusty hinge
Black card base 5 X6.5
Xyron Mega Runner Tape Gun
Xyron tape runners
Glue stick
Hot glue gun

All of the parts cut and laid out for assembly.
All paper edges were lightly distressed with a paper distressing tool and then dyed using Distress Ink in rusty hinge. All pieces were layered and adhered to the card base with mega runner gun. The focal ephemera card (girl with puppy) I adhered to rust cardstock using my Xyron create-a-sticker machine (if you do not have this machine you can also use another adhesive such as a glue stick) and then foam squares to the back for dimension. The "Love is a four-legged word" oval chipboard also adhered with foam squares. Flowers and ribbon were adhered using hot glue.

For the inside, I adhered paper layers with mega runner gun. The lucky dog stamp was cut from the Mr. Whiskers page in the 12x12 paper pack.

I created this card for the challenge at Frilly and Funkie - All you need is love theme
