Challenge #147 - "Animal Magic" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, well its almost March and so far weve seen so much rain Im beginning to wonder if we will ever had decent weather again, my bulbs are beginning to show and even some buds so at least I should be getting some colour soon. Anyway we have another Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and this one is themed "Animal Magic" and we want to see what you can create with animals as your main image, so Im so looking forward to seeing what the entries will be like.
Anyway Im getting ahead of myself and you will want to know what fabulous prize Veronica and Pedro are offering and that is $30.

http://www.thepapershelter.com/

But this is only if you have used one of their products on your card, this could be a image, paper or printable and they do have some on special offer as well, so its well worth a visit to their website here The Paper Shelter. But even if you havent they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice so you really cant loose with this Challenge can you?
And now I want to show you what Ive created for this Challenge and here he is:-


Hes called Henry in my world but the actual image is titled "How are You Doin" and you will find him here, though to be absolutely honest hed be a good advert for "Should have gone to Specs Savers" as he seems bit short sighted fancy thinking the cactus was a friend, oh well never mind. Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him afterward I used Embossing Folder to print the edge around him then cut it out with scissors to create the scalloped edge. This was then placed on a green Oval Nestabilitie Die background. The sentiment is one from my stash thats been also mounted on the same green card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and the papers are from the Pollyanna Pickering CD from Cupcake Crafting and I have used two of them, one has a hedgehog print on it and the second has a smaller on on and I have used a border punch on this, then on top is another mount of green with a check pattern on which has been placed down the card.
I then used a Memory Box die to create the two dark green trellis's and these were stuck across the top and bottom, then the mounted image was placed in the center with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the A Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Animal Magic" theme Challenge.
And do please come back on Saturday as I have some very exciting news for you and look forward to letting you into the secret.

This card is fabulous and reminds me so much of where I live! We have cactus like this all over the place, and people even plant them in their front yards since they require no maintenance! This little hedgie is just too cute and I love how you colored him. Adorable oval doily that he's on. Wonderful card and this is one image that makes me smile! Hugs, Gail
