Wild About Edwin

I'm totally wild about animal print things. A lot of people know I brought Lilah home from the hospital in a leopard print outfit, complete with fruffle (the head bow thing). My baskets in my office are all animal print, too. So when I saw this card kit from my stamping buddy Linda Palmer, I went nuts. The dark piece behind Edwin is a darker leopard print, hard to see in the photo. This zoo keeper Edwin is so cute, too.

I swap Magnolia card kits with a wonderful group of ladies on SCS. You put a few images, two sheets of patterned paper and ribbon and embellies together to make a kit. It is so much fun. This kit had some other embellishment, too, but I didn't use them all, I have plenty for a second card. Thanks Linda!

I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch #38 for this layout. It was perfect for a tall thin image. I didn't use the bow on the top though. I was going to, but ran out of room. The image was a bit bigger than I thought. My three dots on the side are Bella dots, they are the crackle kind and almost look like animal print, too!

Thanks for dropping by today. I love to have visitors. Hope you are having a great week!
