Pet Themed Thank You Card

     I'm trying something new for me today.  There's a new challenge group called "Sending Paw Prints" and they are collecting pet themed Thank You cards for animal shelters to use.  The shelters want them blank inside so that they can use them to thank pet adopters, volunteers, or donors.  This is the first card I've done for them but definitely not the last.

     I used an image from Bugaboo Stamps. colored with ProMarkers, hand cut into a rectangle and then framed with a die cut from Bo Bunny.  Because the frame was smaller than my image, I cut it and expanded it both tall and wide.  I used the little negative strips from the die cut to make it seem tied together.  That entire frame was cut from a scrap snippet of blue CS that had been lying on my desk.

     I added two ribbons from my stash and a satin bow, dyed with ProMarker ink.   The sentiment is printed with a computer font.  I kept this very CAS because I really wanted the framed image to be the focus of the card.

     I probably won't have a post for tomorrow but I'll be back on Friday with my regular QKR Stampede post.  If you haven't played along yet this week, be sure to get something done right away.  Remember, QKR is now Anything Goes all the time with an optional twist if you want to use it.  See you there.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
