Go Wild!

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it's time to introduce our new challenge hostess for March which is Anne Harmon.

Anne tells us that .... "March comes in like a Lion" So our challenge this week is to create a card with a wild animal theme. 

I have never heard this saying before, but I guess that is because I live down here in Australia, so our weather would be different to yours especially as March for us is the beginning of Autumn whereas you are in Winter/Spring.

For my card this week I decided to create a Pivot card using the Katie Label Pivot Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I decorated my card using stamps & dies from MFT Stamps which I received for Christmas.

This is the front of my card, as the Anne referred to Lions in this challenge, of course I put my lion on the front :)

As you can see, I have gone a little over board with this challenge even decorated the back of my card. I had an animal left over which I had already die cut /stamped and colored ... so I had to use it hehe. Of course that meant I had to die cut, stamp and color another tree!

This card is so sweet, in spite of the WILD animals. So cute for a little one's birthday.

Super card, Frances! It looks like a mini safari!

It must be a northern hemisphere thing, because we have the same saying here. Even if it's not true for you - what a delightful and enchanting wildlife scene you have created!
