Animalia Paper


Two very different cards today. Daring Cardmakers has a theme of "Animalia" and, as you would expect, wants to see cards with an animal theme.
I used a cat theme plate from Elusive Images to stamp and emboss my cats, and Making Memories rub ons for the letters.

Thank God it's Friday has a theme of paper...all the paper we have sitting in boxes.

I found lots of remnants - which I file in a box marked "serendipity," so I cut strips of various lengths and used it for the background. The stamps are by Paper Artsy and Artistic Impressions, and the ladybird button - would you believe - came from a cardigan I wore as a child!
