Challenge # 12 at Emma's Cards

A very Happy New Year to you all and I hope you've all recovered from the bugs and festivities. I hope 2013 will be great year for you.
Welcome to Challenge # 12 at Emma's Cards and thank you to everyone who took part in our Let it Snow challenge. The winner will be announced in a few days.
This month's theme is "Animals". Your projects can feature pets, farm or wild animals. Our sponsor for this challenge is our own talented DT member Kath Fowler and she is very generously providing a £25.00 voucher from
Phill Martin's  Honeypot Crafts.
I've used a cute image from the House-Mouse Project Book Volume 1 to make a card to give you some inspiration.

I covered an 8" x 8" card blank with gold mirri then layered with a light blue Papermania textured card. I printed off the decoupage and backing paper from Project 13 and cut the paper into four squares. I matted them onto gold mirri and attached pink polka-dot ribbon to a couple of corners before placing on the card.

I cut out the decoupage and built it up with foam pads and Pinflair. I love this image, especially the mouse getting a scrub with a toothbrush and the budgie enjoying a splash. The blue edging is part of the printed image. I attached the panel to the card with foam pads.

To finish off I added bows to the corner ribbon pieces and some blue feathers.
Now head on over to the challenge blog to see the fantastic cards from the other DT members for some more inspiration and to check out the rules. You have until the end of January to enter your crafty makes, we can't wait to see what you create.
