Die Cut Dreams Challenge #94 Animal Antics

Hi everyone, what a miserable day it is but to help brighten it up it is time for our next challenge at Die Cut Dreams.

ANIMAL ANTICS (must have four legs).

Our sponsor this week is Crimson Cloud.

So here is my DT card....................

I have used a Penny Black image from the It's Your Day set. I have just used a bit of Stardust gel pen on the present and to darken his fur. The tags have been done using Dusty Concord and Black soot distress inks and stamped with a stamp from a Hero Arts set called I Love My Cat.
The grey card has been die cut and embossed using one of the fantastic new folders from X Cut - Gardinia. I distressed the embossing and then put some little purple gems on the flowers.
Have fun and I can't wait to see what four legged animals you show us.
Please check out my team mates for some more fabulous inspiration - their links are on my left sidebar.
