Challenge #115...Our 4 legged friends

Good morning friends,
Here I am back with another challenge. This time at Let's Craft and Create  there is a new challenge  with the theme  ..our 4 legged friends.

The DT have made some stunning cards for your inspiration and we invite you to go along and see what they have to show. You have a whole month to enter, so please join us.

For my card I decided to use my rhino dies. Here in South Africa our rhino population is dropping fasty. Almost every week we here of incidents where the poachers have killed more rhino and gone off with the horns. It is a national tragedy and all attempts at stopping this haven't met with success. Only last week at a private Rhino park less than 30 mins. drive from us another rhino was killed and just a year ago we were in this park with our family from overseas and saw these these magnificent animals.

Paper - My cardstock is actually black and I tried twice to capture it but my photo has come out blue.
I used a piece of handmade paper and tore the edges. I did some stamping with a script stamp and also a tree.

I cut the rhinos out twice. Once with black card and once with cork paper. It is  kraft paper with a thin layer of cork. I have had this for such a long time and forgot that I still had some.

Cut a tag out of rippled card. Stamped a sentiment, and cut that out and layered onto the tag. Tied it with a piece of raffia string.

Finished it off with three polka dot buttons.

What a beautiful card, navy or black, it looks good, love the stamped tree and the texture, especially on the Rhino, it's so sad as you say all the killing of them for their horn.
