On top of the news!

My neighbour asked me to make a card for her forty something son who lives in France, so it could not be heavily embellished as it has to go in the post.  She suggested cars, but I know he likes dogs and has one that looks a bit like this so I thought I'd make two cards, I'll show you the second later in the week, and give her a choice.

This gorgeous image is from Joanna Sheen's 'Furry Friends' along with two of the papers, the third paper with the text on it is from Polka Doodles 'Not For Girls', I have layered everything onto Core'dinations card stock.  Keeping in mind that the card has to posted to France the only embellishments are some corners cut from the Core'dinations card stock and three brads from my stash.

I have decorated the inside of the card, again keeping it simple to save on weight.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
