OMG, does this card bring back memories. I had to stop blogging and go find the theme song to the TV Series "Hee Haw" just to hear the donkey at the beginning of it, LOL!!! After finishing this card I realized the shadow layer with the punched edge looks a lot like a fence! Had to pat myself on the back for that one, LOL!!! The image and sentiment are both from the Quirky Donkey digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry. I'm entering this card in the Paper Pretties Challenge to use "buttons".
As I'm blogging this my wonderful husband is telling me that the card reminds him of the Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue. Of course I've never heard of them and had to google it, turns out we are donors. Peaceful Valley provides a safe haven for more than one thousand domestic donkeys that have suffered abuse, neglect and abandonment. I think my wonderful husband deserves a HUGE pat on the back for that one!!!
My card base is Brown layered with White Cardstock then Olive Branch Patterned Paper. The shadow layer is Nestled Patterned Paper layered on Brown finished on both sides using the Arch Lattice Punch. I added a zig zag stitch around the card base and a straight stitch around the shadow layer.
The image and sentiment were printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. I distressed the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a sponge then paper pierced before layering on Brown Cardstock. To embellish the card I added a bow made from True Thyme Stitched Ribbon and two Brown Buttons threaded with DMC White.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
