Digi Doodle Shop Challenge #71 Shaped Cards

This week at Digi Doodle Shop's Challenges we are challenging you to create a shaped card. Your card can be any shape other than the typical square or rectangular card.

I created my card for a very special young lady who will be celebrating her birthday next week. My niece, Aubri, will be 8 years old. She decided that instead of the typical gifts this year she wanted guests to donate money to charities that help save animals around the world. How special is that! All three of the animals on my card arein need of help. The tiger is threatened by growing human populations, loss of habitat and illegal hunting. The giraffes and kangaroos are threatened by habitat destruction.
