LOTV (96) - Animal Antics!

Challenges

Lili Of The Valley DT (96) - Animal Antics
Papertake - Anything Goes (Something Round)
Cute Card Thursday (163) - Chocolate

It's Thursday again which means another challenge at Lili Of The Valley and this week we have a theme of 'Animal Antics' so let's see all your cuddly animals on your projects. We are again being sponsored by Lisa & Laila who have kindly donated a £10.00 voucher to spend in the LOTV Online Shop. Don't forget, to be eligble for the prize you have to use an LOTV image on your project. The DT have created some beautiful cards so why not pop on over to their blogs and have a look.

For my card I have done a step type card which I have made to fit an A5 envelope. As a work colleague is leaving us I have made her a good luck card using the 'Lucky Cats' stamp from the recently released animal range from LOTV. I have teamed this up with one of their fantastic circular sentiments. I have used embossed card for the base card, you should be able to see the flowers on it if you look carefully. I then cut a panel of card and overlayed it with gingham paper before adding some gorgeous black lace. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and layered with Nesties. I also layered the sentiment. I didn't have any black card candy so I coloured some shiny silver ones with a black promarker and was very pleased with the result. I added some punched flowers and placed pearls in their centres to both side strips. A little punched butterfly finishes the card off, hope you like it, thanks for looking.
