C4C281 National Pet Day

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog.  Lynn Put is our hostess for April, and this is her challenge:

11th April (C4C281) - Did you know that today is National Pet Day? For our challenge this week, create a card or project using some type of pet as your inspiration. 

I have another "Pull Card Turned Stand-Up/Easel Card" to share today. You can see my post on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog HERE for another version.  This is the card in the closed position ...

When you open the card, this cute scene is revealed and the puppy spins up and into view.

I bought this fence die because I knew it would work really well with Karen Burniston's new release and I'm finding lots of uses for it! I really like these Puppy Peel-Off's that Els designed and have quite a few sheets of them.  I used one of the puppies for this card, adhering the Peel-Off to double sided adhesive and adding the Silk microfine Glitter. Then I coloured the image with Copics and fussy cut it.

Lots of Karen Burniston dies were used for this card ... the Rectangle Pull Card, the All Seasons Tree (clouds), the Beach Edges (hills) and the Happy Birthday Pop Up (Happy). The word Happy and the letters were cut from white card stock that has the Elizabeth Craft Designs Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back. Which makes adhering letters and script words a breeze.

Below you can see how I positioned the spinner.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C281.
