One Card - Six Challenges!

Not having made a card for a few days, I thought I'd have a go at making one and including it in quite a few challenges.
I've had a few personal challenges of my own the last few days, so this is my first opportunity to make one.
The challenges I'm hoping to enter my card into are:-
2) A Spoon Full of Sugar #90 - recipe of 1 each of patterned paper, embossing, button & ribbon
3) The Pink Elephant Challenge #53 - Mushy Gushy Valentine
5) Truly Scrumptious Challenge #25 - Sketch, with additional buttons & bows

This is a wonderful sketch to follow, I really enjoyed making it.
I printed out some valentine papers which I downloaded some time ago, and embossed some plain red cardstock which I had bought from The Paper Mill some time ago.
A few days ago, I bought some thin ribbon from HobbyCraft which has just opened near me, and I used some double sided tape on the back to stick down onto the card.
Instead of the flower on the design, I used a bow, topped with a button, to tie in with one of the challenges.
To finish the card, I used a silver peel off for the sentiment.
The picture on the front of the card is an image of a cavalier king charles spaniel, which looks very much like my dog Sam. 
As I love him loads, I wanted to express it in this valentines card.
Below is the sketch which I followed and the card which I've made.
Thank you for looking! 
Love, Karen xx

  2. Oh this is sweet Karen and it really does look like Sam even with the bow and button on his head. That heart paper looks really nice with the embossed red too.
