Challenge #283 - "Animal Magic" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well we are now into the third month of the year and so far other than watching the Daffodils flower and crocus's its not showing to much of Spring yet, hopefully it wont be long before the trees start to leaf up and it makes us feel brighter, Spring is one of the best times of the year and I cannot help loving it.
Anyway todays Challenge is "Animal Magic" and Im sure that shouldnt be a problem for you we all have images of animals among our stash of goodies so hopefully it wont be for you either and you can take part in our Challenge this Week, but before I show you my own card I want to tell you who our sponsors are and they are The Paper Shelter

And they are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend on their website if you use one of our products and even if you dont use one of them either a image, paper or printable and you are picked as our winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so its a win win situation and you really cannot loose by giving it a go. But please remember you can enter 3 times but you must use one of our products on one of your entries.
And now for my Card I do hope you like it, I have two great grandsons who absolutely love dinosaurs so I thought this would be a fabulous card for one of them.

This image is called "Best Day of my Life" and you will find this image here, I printed it onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used a oval die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount out of green card. The sentiment was treated in the same way and was also mounted on a fancy mount out of green card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of green card the papers I have used are from Pink Gem Designs and are called "Fabusaurus" and I thought theyd be ideal for this card and I have used three of the papers and cut them diagonally and used a dinosaur border punch from MK to cut the edges then layered it up as shown in the photo.
I then placed my image in the center with the sentiment below in the right hand corner, and to finish of I have used 5 dinosaur buttons down the right side and in the bottom left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of my very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope you will give it a try and take part in the Challenge.
But before I finally finish my blog post I want to send my love and prayers to one of my fellow DT members Patty as she is incapacitated at the moment due to a broken shoulder and had a operation on it on Monday and I sincerely hope she is now on the mend and will be back with us soon as I miss her and so do the girls.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
