My Sheri Crafts Challenge #61

This week at My Sheri Crafts the challenge is to make a Father's Day card. I have a sad story behind my card. Last Friday, we lost our outside dog Shadow. Hubby found him after I had went to work. He was 15 years old. We were surprised and blessed that he had made it through the winter. But is was still a shock and we sure miss him. I decided to use Four Legged Friends lite cartridge for my card. I cut the paw. It is black and white because all of our fur babies are black and white or white and black. Shadow was black with a little white and his muzzle had turned gray. The pattern cardstock is from a pet stack but I can't remember who put it out. The piece on the inside with the paw on it is also from the stack. The dog, bone and hearts are from a pack of pet buttons that I got at Hobby Lobby a long time ago. The dog had a button loop on the back that I cut off so it would lay flat. The sentiment is computer generated and then punched out and popped up. I inked the edges with cocoa ink and used some on the paw to give it a little bit of a dirty look. Sheri posts a new challenge on Saturdays, so you have plenty of time to create a Father's Day card and link it up!! Hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
