CAS(e) this sketch #196

Hi there!

It's time for (CAS)e this sketch !

This week's challenge is a little special.  We were contacted by Karen of Feline Creative about possibly joining her in creating cards for a local animal shelter.  The team thought that would be absolutely awesome so we decided to open it up to all of you as well.  So, this week's sketch is going to be our first CAS(E) for a Cause! 

Now, it is not required that you participate in our CAS(E) for the Cause to play along with our challenge.  You are more than welcome to just use the sketch and enter your card as normal.  All cards will be considered for the win.  However, if you feel so inclined, we'd love to have you join in the fun.  Here's a few details about the CAS(E) and you can visit Karen to read more.

They are looking for mostly general and thank you pet themed cards (no wild animals please).   Some birthday, sympathy and anniversary cards are welcome too.  Please leave the inside of the cards blank for the humane society to write personal messages.   Please include envelopes.  No plastic sleeves.

We hope you'll join us in sending cards to Karen for this really awesome cause!  

Being a dog lover myself, I am joining the fun... for sure!

This is my card, using the sketch flipped upside down!

A closer look:

just for you puppy card - pencil and kraft

I found this cute pup in an online coloring book here.

I opened the image in the silhouette studio, and used the trace, print and cut function to prepare it for my card.

I colored him with DERWENT Inktense pencils. I think this is only the second time ever I tried coloring on kraft, and I really love the way it turned out. I will try it again soon, for sure!

The paw prints are free clip art I found here.

The sentiment is my own and as always you are welcome to use it :)

just for you free card sentiment

Fonts used : Apple Boy & Beautiful every time.

Hi Hannelie, I have to say when I saw the puppy card and your name I thought ahh there is another Hannelie in card crafting. clicked on it to check. This puppy is so cute and beautifully coloured and love those paw prints (downloaded that file). I don't think I have ever seen you do animal card before, not sure. Great cause and I hope it goes well, this card is truly a winner.
I too am a huge fan of Lisa's, her style and use of dies is perfect.
