Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge #1

Hi folks!
Well, it's Friday 3rd April which means only one thing... the first Dare U 2 Digi stamp challenge is finally here. This week is a sketch by my good friend Christine Dark and the sparkly new Design Team have done an amazing job. There is a great prize bundle up for grabs for those who enter the challenge. Don't forget you can use digi stamps/downloads from any company and combine your challenges.

My card is a mixture of old and new. The Meerkats you see here are from my new releases and are available here. These cheeky chappies are called the Meerkat Amigos! I had to dig deep into my craft Mountain for the animal print paper which is from a Joanna Sheen paper pack. I have been reliably informed (thanks Chris)that the base paper is called 'banana paper'. It has a lovely texture and real pressed leaves in the paper itself. These papers, as with the animal print and the tree buttons, have been waiting to be used for many years. I'm one of those...'I'm sure it will come in handy one day' type of crafters. The string is from under my kitchen sink. Just the job. The sentiment is cut using Go-Kreate dies. I coloured the image in with my koi watercolours and this has been layered onto mulberry paper.
I do hope you are able to join in with our very first challenge.
Ciao for now
