Lili Of The Valley DT/Animals + Challenges

Good morning everyone, a lovely warm day here and another challenge from Lili Of The valley.

This week we would like to see animals on your cards, and please remember, you DO NOT haver to use LOTV products to enter this challenge, any image is welcome.

This image is a RAK that was kindly sent to me from Denise at Whimsy Stamps. Whimsy Stamps have a fantastic range of stamps and the animal collection is one of the best. I got delivery of my SU Watercolour Crayons the other day so thought they would be great to try out. The cardstock wasn't the best for the crayons but I done my best and think my lion looks pretty cool! The papers are The English Paper Company and the sentiment and circles are all SU. Distressed the paper edge with a chalk ink pad and added some faux stitching.

The rest of my DT friends have some lovely examples for you to see, and we do hope that you can join in this week. I also believe there is a little something for the winner for this challenge

This card also fits into 3 challenges this week;

Stamp With Fun - Shapes/Punches

Have a lovely day!
