Challenge #441 - Animals and Pets - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, I cannot believe that the children have been back at School two weeks all ready I hope your family are now well and truly settled back and are enjoying learning with their new teachers again. This weeks theme is all about those Pets that they have or should I say you probably have to look after

Animals and Pets

or if not no doubt you have taken family or been yourself to the Zoo or Safari Parks.
I think its time for me to get on and to remind you that you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from for this theme to. Our Sponsors are and as always are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website. 

But don't forget they will only give you the whole amount if you have used one of their images on your card but don't worry if you haven't, they will still give you 3 digi images or your own choice if you are picked as a winner.
For this weeks card I have used this image


This unusual image is titled "State of the Art Dogwalk" you will find it here and as hubby and I are very much computer nerds I felt this was ideal to create this card, mind you I think I may have to buy a drone to actually try it.
I printed it onto white card before colouring it with my copic pens and then cutting it out with one of my fancy rectangle dies and cutting a larger one out of blue card for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I have also cut it out of white card and mounted it onto blue card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card the same I used the backing paper that came with the image and you will find it here. I then placed a bone ribbon around the card and attached it to the back and placed my mounted sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. I then placed my mounted image towards the top in the center.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this  "Animals and Pets" Challenge to.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:
