Not Your Average Pet

I had so much fun creating this card as my entry for this week's sunday theme challenge for the Craftbubble Craft Mad & Loving It group.  My pal Kathy is this week's Guest Design Team Member and her theme is "Not your Average Pet"  - what a great theme !

I dug out some of my older Magnolia stamps, coloured the images with a mixture of Copics and Promakers and cut each one out.

The grass was created using some SU! Garden Green cardstock and an icicle border die from Marianne's Designs, which I think makes perfect grass.

I stamped the African Sun image straight on to the base card before colouring it, adding the other elements with Pin Flair glue to give them just a little dimension.  There's Glossy Accents on Tilda's bucket and Edwin's matchette and just a touch on the ellie's eyes to make them shine. 

I'm also entering this card for the All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge #11 - In the good 'ole Summer Time.

I hope this project made you smile as much as it did me while I was creating it.  Thanks for dropping by today, I appreciate it !
