Cards For Men - Challenge Five - "Paper Piecing"

We had such a fabulous response to the last challenge and we are thrilled with that, thank you all for taking part, its such a pleasure and a thrill to look at your fantastic work. I do so hope that you will take part is this fortnights challenge as we are being sponsered by Stamping Boutique and they are going to give away 5 digi images of your own choice.

This is what Tracy says about her company:

We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week." And this is the link that will take you to see her fantastic creations
This is my DT card that I created for this Challenge, its one of the images from Tracys Shop.

Ive actually used a gorgeous Noahs Ark Digi stamp for my card, and the same named papers from the Nitwit Downloads, but I did also use the Archaic Papers from Basic Grey to print on for the paper piecing of my image, the rainbow and sky were coloured using my copic pens, and I also used a Sakura glitter pen for the stars.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of blue card, and one of three design papers from the Nitwit Collection and Ive layered them up with the same blue card, theres the base paper which has a animal design on and two others one a sentiment one and the other a stripped one, these were stuck to two mounts and placed on the base card. The strip of dark blue pearlescent paper across the centre has had a border punch used on both edges.
The mounted image was stuck on top of this and my sentiment was stuck on the bottom at the right, to finish of Ive used some animal buttons that I bought in Hobby Crafts.
