Simply Create Too Challenge 34 Midway Extra - Animals

You would be forgiven for thinking that I've already blogged this card- we'll, I have, sort of - very similar but some differences - this is the green themed version - the original one is here!

It's the Midway Extra part for the current Simply Create Too challenge and the theme (there is a week left to get your entries in!) is


I've used the same Penny Black stamp from one of the clear packs and I've coloured it with Aquamarkers and used papers from Dovecraft Back to Basics 2.

I've added a faux stitch around the edges of the image and papers and made the bunting myself.  I cheated a little with the brads as they are Sharpie marker dots with a blob of liquid pearls over the top.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set and I've added ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge - we also have a Design Team Call running - pop over to the Challenge blog for more details!
