ABC Z for Zoo

Our challenge today at ABC is Z for Zoo, which means that we want to see animal inspired creations, for example we would like you to use an animal or animal print on your creation, you can add other images too if you like just as long as you have an animal or animal print there too ( Sorry but bugs and butterflies don't count!)

Z Zoo

We are sponsored by Pretty Little Ribbon Shop with this fabulous prize

which will be perfect for your Christmas creations!

For my card I used a combination of Prima papers from the Fairy Fauna pad and also Memory Box Viola paper pack. The corrugated pale green paper I had in my stash.

My image is from Delicious Doodles at Stitchy Bear Stamps and I think she is just beautiful. I coloured her with copics to match the background papers. The flower is from some lush glittery leopard print card that I wanted to use, but was a bit too overpowering in a larger capacity, as the colours were more yellow than orange, but as a flower I felt it fitted in better. The mat behind Katrina is the Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 which are just gorgeous and the border was cut with a punch that doesn’t have a name so no idea what it was called.
