A Little Critter - Corgi

 I made this card in honor of HM Queen Elizabeth's passing.  I live in the US but I am of British heritage and always feel a connection to the going's on in Great Britain.

I had purchased the Lil Critters Corgi die from Simon Says Stamp, last year to make a birthday card for my grandniece because Corgi's were the favorite thing of the day for her!

I sprayed Distress Stains over the stencil (Spatter Heart from A Colorful Life), using Fired Brick, Carved Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber.

I ran my Versamark ink along the edge of the panel and gold embossed it. The Corgi is up on foam dots. I just happened to have a crown in my box of charms so I put that on the Corgi's head!

I stamped the sentiment from Rainbow Bridge from Honey Bee Stamps and added a gem heart.  This card is 5" square.

My deepest condolences to Great Britain in the loss of their beloved Queen.
