Card for a Cause :-)



I have made this card for a Post pal
The theme this week on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is 'Happy Mail' We are asked to make a card for a sick child and post it, the difficult thing is choosing a child !! I have several cards so will be sending quite a few :-)
I am also entering this card for the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge whose theme is 'Touchy Feely' ( fab theme and very original !! )I used a velvet paw print ribbon and fun flocked the toes, the image is also has 3 layers so very 3D :-) I also added a little bell and I'll also leave the card overnight in Jessie's basket prior to posting to give it an authentic 'doggy' smell lol :-) Lots of senses stimulated there !! :-)
I used the fab sketch by Nikki on the One Stop Craft Challenge. I changed it to make a square card, I didn't mean to but when I took the card to the trimmer I had chopped it before I realised what I was doing !! I did mean to just score it down the middle !! duh !! Hope ya don't mind Nikki !!

The doggy image I used is a brand new one ( for me ) from Lili Of The Valley :-) I did feel that as I am a GD for 2 months I should make a card for their challenge using their stuff, but couldn't wait to ink this one up :-) Isn't he cute !!
The background paper and panel at the side are DCWV Pet's Stack, The ribbon was from Meiflower

I kept the card quite simple, the paper is busy enough !! :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

There are only a couple of days left to enter my blog candy, you can see it at the top of my blog :-)
