Retirement Card - for a dog lover

A friend at work asked me to make a custom card for a coworker who was retiring, and LOVED shitzus. So, I figured I would try to make a punch art shitzu dog for the card! She also loves green, blue and pink, so this is the card I came up with! It is an easel card, which means she can put it on a shelf open and it sits like you see in the photo below. I like doing custom cards as easel cards, as they become a nice keepsake for the receiver.

I thought I'd try the new Labels Collection framelits by SU!, and I am loving them! They are an excellent way to add a beautiful frame to a card easily! The collection comes with 6 wafer-thin dies that cut up to a 5-7/16" wide label - which would be great as a unique card shape! 

 Here is a close-up of the front of the card with the punch art shitzu, flowers, ribbon and lower easel section:
 And the inside:
