Animal Magic

Good morning to you all and hope you are well - if not here's a big hug!  Today is the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is:

ANIMAL MAGIC

Here is my card:


I have used the beautiful The Best Nap Ever which is available to purchase at The Paper Shelter. Don't forget when you get one of the beautiful digis they come in a set which includes the image both coloured and not coloured for you to colour and beautiful backing papers too.  I coloured the image myself with my Copics.  The papers are Nitwits Bonnets n Bowties.  I have used my MS PATP Cherish punch on Centura Pearl Card and the image has been cut using Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax.  The banner is La La Land, flower a Marianne die and the banner is Lil' Inker but I'm not sure who the sentiment is by possibly Lil Inker too and I stamped it in Color Box  Ink Turquoise.  Here is another view:


Please go over to The Paper Shelter Challenge and see what the rest of the DT have done - WOW! As usual there is a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:


Really worth entering, especially if you use a Paper Shelter image!

Challenges I would like to enter:

to follow

Thought I would show you a picture Dave took of the churchyard in  our little village we go to for our shopping:


Its really beautiful when you walk through it and very popular with Brides this time of year!  I am off out this afternoon with my daughter to pick up the pram!  Have a wonderful day whatever you are doing. Thank you so much for coming by. Take care xx

This is a gorgeous card. The color is absolutely outstanding. Your coloring is fantastic and I hope you don't mind if I try to color the elephant and use your card as a sample. It's so wonderfully shaded. I adore the embellishments on this card..they're absolutely perfect with the image. And the shape of this card is fabulous. Hugs, Gail
