Poppin' By to Say Hi - The Sequel

Hello Friends & Followers,
     I have a request - most of you know how much my little furbaby means to me, he had back surgery a mere 6 months ago and it seems like he is having back problems again out of the blue.  I am beside myself and just want him to feel better.  It breaks my heart because he is SUCH a good little dog!  SO well behaved and loving, and has already had a hard life before we adopted him, can't he just be healthy and enjoy life already?!!  :(  So, if any of your are praying folk, could you please put in some positive thoughts & prayers for our little furbaby?  He means the world to me, both of us would be most grateful.
     After staying up basically all night with him and being stressed and exhausted my husband insisted I go upstairs (my craft room is upstairs in our house and we are too afraid to lift Ty up and down the stairs in his condition to keep me company in there) and make a card to calm down and take my mind off of things for a while, that he would watch Ty.  It really wasn't easy, it is difficult for me to be creative when I am upset, but I had this card largely thought out before last night so that helped.  I used The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS140 which reminded me of a film strip at an angle, so I combined it with this cute little Popcorn Cocoa mouse digi from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps with some popcorn patterned paper by the Paper Studio that I have had in my stash for a while to create this card:
I like the image and the paper and the ribbon together, but I am not in love with the sentiments I chose (they are from SNSS' 'Somebuggy Loves You') I would have preferred something like 'Poppin' By To Say Hi!' to go along with the popcorn paper.  I am not in love with my rhinestone placement either.  I guess that is what happens what you try to be creative when you are stressed and worried.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:

   Thank you so much for stopping by to see my creations, thanks in advance for prayers for Ty baby.
