Birds or Animals at Crafty Ann's

Good morning folks, where did the last two weeks go? I think I must be getting old as time is really flying this year. Anyway as its Friday its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's and this time our theme is 'Birds or Animals'. Our lucky winner will as always receive a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop but as Ann has some fabulous special offers on at the minute everyone can grab a bargain!! Do pop over and have a look, as Crafty Ann's digi kits are all less than a pound! What a bargain as they are crammed full of papers and images. While you're having a look, don't forget to check out the freebies page too :-)

Anyway back to my card, i've used Crafty Ann's gorgeous squirrel image, coloured with derwent inktense pencils and die cut with nesties. The backing papers are from Crafty Ann's polished stone collection and the Cream Dream collection. I've made the flower from recycled tissue paper coloured with distress inks and die cut with tattered forals. I've used kraft cardstock for matting and layering and added ribbon, button and twine from my stash. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Craft Room challenge: Die cuts/punches
Incy Wincy: Square cards
Oldie but Goodie : Anything but Christmas
(my oldies are ribbon, button and sentiment stamp)
Ribbon Carousel: Fall/give thanks
Whoopsi Daisy: die cuts/ punches

thanks for visiting today
