Animal antics at Creative Craft challenge

Hi blog friends

Its another challenge over at Creative craft Challenges today and the theme is 

Animal Antics!

Which basically means - put an animal on your card!!!

We have some great sponsors for this challenge, Bugaboo and Robyns fetish are both offering prizes as well as Joanna Sheen, so why don't you have a crafty play and lets see what Animal Antics you can get up to.

Heres my DT card that has been made with one of the fab images supplied to the DT by the sponsors. This one is from Bugaboo

 I loved this little image as soon as I saw it and it said to me "I'm a bee!"  I coloured it all up and glitterd his wings - very bee like I thought and found a sentiment to match.  When my husband was giving his obligatory comment - like all good crafty husbands do - he said yes its very good but isn't it supposed to be a butterfly!!  Well now that you mention it he's probably right but you've just got to go with your instincts - and mine are obviously way off lol.

a close up of the glitter details

I did a bit of recycling with this card  the raffia came on a lovely bunch of flowers that I bought that I knew would be perfect for a card.  And the flowers - although they're from wild orchid have had their middles pulled out! and replaced with a lovely black gem to finish off the look

Heres what I did

Image - digi from bugaboo (since found thats he's butterfly bear!!)
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Scalloped card - craftwork cards
Sentiment - is a digi - can't remember who's but I'll update if I find it
Flowers -wild orchid crafts
Paper - prima sun kiss
Everything else is from my stash

Why don't you stop by to see what the design team has done with their images - you'll find some real inspiration from my talented teamies!
