Crafty Monkey's Challenge 1 - Wild Animals

It is such an exiting day for me today as this is my card to show you for our first challenge at Crafty Monkey's. The theme for Challenge 1 is Wild Animals. Our challenge is fortnightly so you have until Friday 11th July to join in. A random winner will be chosen on this day. Remember if you do not have the appropriate stamp we look forward to seeing your own hand drawn designs. If you do not have a blog to display your cards please email a picture of your work to either myself or Hannah. More details can be found on the Crafty Monkey's blog.

We have a great prize this week of a Magnolia Bandage Tilda stamp which has very kindly been donated by Jacqui - Cats Whiskers.

The stamp I used is Leo from High Hopes and I coloured him with my Whisper pens. I chose the papers and ribbon from Mum's stash and printed the sentiment out from our computer. My Mum helped me with the layout and cutting of the nestabilities.

Hope you like it and will join in the fun.

Thank you Jacqui for also sending us this gorgeous card and also the Magnolia stamps for me and Hannah. I can't wait to use my new stamp so look out for it soon on a future challenge card.
