Knew she could for the Pal Paper Arts

My niece, Shauna, is starting college today.  She has said, ever since I can remember, that she wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up. She has persistently pursued this dream and today starts her higher education journey to achieve it.  What better reason could there be to send a card.

Stampin UP Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack

Even while in High School Shauna found opportunities to learn about the world of veterinarian medicine. She volunteered at local vets offices over holiday breaks to get real life experience.  Her specialty is going to be in large animal medicine so her experiences often involved long gloves and not so happy cows.  While she probably won’t be treating zebras and giraffes the Go Wild paper stack and the It’s Wild background stamp made a perfect backdrop for her card.

I used the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge to design my card and the following color combination.
