The background paper I used as the base was really old along with the corrugated cardstock too. Flowers are Prima Mktg, the metal pieces are Close To My Heart and the pearl brads, I have no idea. The doggie in the middle was rescued from the Illinois Doberman Rescue in April of 2010. (No he's not a doberman, but they love all dogs). His mother was a stray that was starving to death. They rescued her off the street and found out she was pregnant. This is one of her puppies, there are 3 other survivor puppies too. Born on Valentines Day 2010! All in good homes and the mommy too. Happy ending or should I say beginning.
