I love the saying with the background paper!
I searched the web and couldn't find this set available.
Now...I'll be on the search for dog DSP then

I do love cards with lots of
white space...and since we have
a new baby girl next door, I made
a version of this card for her big sister:

Congrats to Corrine!...and while I had everything out,
I made a get well card and one last 
thinking of you card:

I couldn't decide if I liked the black stitch
lines best and decided to add them:

...and after I added them, I think I like the less is more look. I do like the rounded corners, though, as compared to the square corners on the get well card above!

Fluffles the Cat by Stampendous
and Friends SSC217

Also, to get the string to go behind the paw of the cat, to get a light brown color on the cat on the darker brown paper AND to prevent the markers from bleeding through to the inside of the card base, stamp the cat once on the background/card base, stamp it a second time on white card stock, color it with copics and then fancy cut it out so it can be glued over the cat image on the card front.
