With black card stock and Summer in Paris cartridge cut lady at and poodle at   (I went around edges of cut with black Sharpie so white core wouldn't show)  Cut umbrella from Create a Critter at   . Adhere cuts as shown.  Ink in leash. For triangles I used diamond from Gypsy Wanderings aand cut at .75, 1, and 1.25 " Then I cut each diamond in half.  Saying is computer generated.  Oval is an old punch(label is off)
