Animal Antics with Dutch Dare

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenges. This week our theme is Animal Antics. We're being sponsored by the fabulous Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps, who very kindly gave the DT some images to work with. They're also offering one lucky winner 3 digis. 

Here's my little piece of inspiration...
I've used a gorgeous digi called Cocoa's gift. I've coloured using Copics. I'm really pleased how it turned out. The backing papers are from the Forever Friends 'For You' 6x6 paper pack, matted with black card. I just love the combination of black and pink. After cutting the image out I mounted it on a Spellbinder Picot Edged Circle, also making flowers in this 'spotty' paper using a Tonic punch, finishing with a button. I die cut a couple of ferny leaves in black to finish off the floral display. The sentiment is from a pack by Docrafts. Here's a close up of that cute image...

I hope you'll hop on over to the challenge. There's some exciting news about a name change for the challenge and we're also welcoming a couple of new team mates.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Crafty Sentiments - Colourful
'ABC' Challenges - Lots of layers
Make it Monday - Anything goes
The Crazy Challenge - Animals

Thanks for visiting. I'll try and share the Christmas cards I made yesterday if I get chance today but I'm getting my hair coloured later and I've got a banging headache for some stupid reason. Ho hum...

See you soon
