R.A.D. Card

Happy Reptile Awareness Day (R.A.D)! I wonder why it's a day of awareness instead of appreciation? Does one need to be reminded to check oneself for reptiles on a regular basis?!

I am very reptile-aware, being the proud owner of an 11-year-old green iguana, Percy. He's the pride of the family, truly!

I found out about this Day via the current challenge at Die Cutting Divas, and made a point of visiting TLC Creations today because she always has freebies for Specials Days. She certainly didn't disappoint! I just had to use her vintage image & sentiment digis for the DCD challenge. For the layout, I went to the current sketch at Card Positioning Systems.
I whipped this up pretty quickly! I designed the front pocket & tabbed insert in SCAL, and used Cricut's Paper Dolls cartridge for the die-cut leaves. The insert has a photo of Percy himself:

I think that it is really great you own a reptile, Percy. Who knew there were so many holidays to celebrate unusual events (Like R.A.D)?!?! Your card is fantastic and I am glad you decided to share with us.
