Can You Case It #134 Theme Challenge

Welcome to Sunday and another challenge from the fantastic designers at CYCI. This week we have a theme challenge and it's all about your pets.
When I came to sit down and make this card, I had a bit of trouble as it turns out I have no animal stamps at all... unless you class the dinosaurs!! But I used a little bit of out the box thinking and this is what I came up with.
It's a pretty simple card this week, but it's actually heading over to my neighbour who recently lost his dog, of 14years, Sammy. It's like losing one of the family and the kids are also pretty upset by it all. I just wanted them to know we are thinking of them.

Now the punch art paw print isn't something new, but I have always had it in the back of my mind to try it out and thought this this weeks challenge was perfect timing.

I used the sweetheart punch for the main paw print and then four little 3/4" circle punches for each pad. The background is a wash of Emerald Envy on some Shimmery white.

So now it's over to you guys. Hop over to the blog and check out the DT's inspirational designs and then take a little craft time to take part yourself. We always love to see what you come us with!!

Happy Crafting,
