Sample No.4 for Sarah - "Meerkats"

Good Morning Ladies, I do hope you ae enjoying your weekend, well Ive finished all the samples for Sarah and this is sample No.4 these absolutely gorgeous Meerkats and Ive got to say its hubbys most favourite animal, hes even got Alexander as his mobile phone ringtone, that shows you how nuts he is over that character.
Anyway Ive created a pyramid topper for this one, and printed it onto semi-gloss paper then cut it out by hand after which Ive then created a mount for it by drawing around the image and cutting out again by hand. Afterwards I started to mount up all the layers with the silicone glue, then left it to dry.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of green card with one of two papers that Ive used for this card, I should say that Ive used two more from the same set for the inside. The base layer is a beautiful jungle paper with a misty looking background, and then on top Ive used one of the other then cut it into a strip and used again one of my Martha Border punches down each side then positioned it to the right hand side, across the bottom I used a ribbon strip that I took into a graphics program to put a sentiment on, this was then stuck at the bottom of the base card. I then positioned my mounted pyramid image towards the left hand side.
I will be keeping back the last two samples to show you nearer the preview program time as tomorrow I have my DT card for Cards for Men to show you.
