Carte Postale

Hello again, another quiet day at home. I went out to check the mail today and just happened to glance to the left and caught a flash of white in the neighbour's front yard. I had a longer look and saw it was my son's dog. Somehow the little scallywag had got out of our yard. Our two dogs were still in the yard. I rang my DIL to find out if she was going to come and get her and she said it would be after lunch. She arrived around about 4 p.m. just as a tow truck arrived with a damaged car that our youngest son has just bought turned up. By that time, I worked out where the dog had got out. She is only a little thing and my small dog is still bigger but I'm sure if she dug the ground she too could get out. Well, I shoved an empty pot there for now and will have to get hubby to do something a bit more permanent later on.
Here is my card for today.
I've used SU Early Espresso for the card base. The DP is from a mini stack by DCWV. I diecut a piece of Kraft with a Nellie Snellen die and then stamped my image onto white card with Early Espresso ink, trimmed it to fit inside the diecut and sponged the edges before adhering it to the diecut. I added two strips of the early espresso and popped the image up with foam dots. The inside has a layer of Kraft and two strips of the brown to match the front.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Craftting When We Can - Challenge #15 - Things With Wings
Catch the Bug - April Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Challenge #8 Kraft
