Another pet rescue card for donation

2nd Pet rescue card,  only 28 more to go. 



The  images are from a set from Lawn fawn  ,  critters in the burbs .  The plaid
paper is also Lawn Fawn.  Unfortunately  I ordered the 6 x 6 pads and have
not received them yet so I had to use a 12 x 12 sheet.  I love all their plaids.

Dog Card

Cards to donate for an animal rescue event


 One of my best friends will have a booth at a pet fair put on by a few animal
rescue groups in Montreal, Quebec.  She wanted me to sell some of my
cards but I decided to make some to donate instead, so for the next while 
most of my cards will be pet related.  I have a lot of friends that have 
jumped on the bandwagon  and decided to donate cards as well. 
This is the first one.   


The card is a 4.25 x 5.5 card . The image is from Inkadoo  stamped in Versafine black ink
The stars and background paper is from Stampin Up,  Bermuda Bay.
