Challenge #101 - The Paper Shelter - "Animal Magic"

Good Morning Crafters, oh wow what a fabulous response to our DT Call, and Marie will be announcing the new Team sometime today over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot, and I hope you will also help me welcome them and also send a very sad goodbye to the girls who are now stepping down and they have been very special friends and Im going to miss them terribly and they are Lorraine, Ann Marie, Julie and Paola, Im still hoping to call on them occassionally to step in as Guest Designers so I think you may well see them now and again, but I do want to wish them all the best for the future.
But back to todays Challenge, this week we want to see "Animals" on your card and I do know that many of you have them in your stash so it should cause any problems finds something that will fit the bill. As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

To spend on their website and you will receive the whole amount if you have used one of their products on your card, but even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. So do please go and visit their website Here and see for yourself what stunning images, papers and printables that they have to offer you at fabulous prices, as the exchange rate is brilliant.

And now I want to show you what I have created for this weeks Challenge.

I have used this " Most Adorable Cavalier" image and you will find it here, I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie die Labels No.1 to cut it out then used a fancy die for the mount, the sentiment was created on my computer and printed out as I felt is was appropriate saying for this gorgeous image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the paper I used actually comes with the image and I have stuck it to the base card, then wrapped a ribbon around the top, and created the flower at the bottom with several punched out pieces and layered them up to create the large daisy in the bottom left hand corner, this was stuck to the card with a silicone glue and some punched out leaves.
The last flourish is the three gems stuck down the right hand side at the top.
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 very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope that you will then take part in this "Animal Magic" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
