Fussy and fancy Challenge #121 ... Pets

The next challenge #121 is being sponsored by the lovely talented Beth and she has chosen Pets as the theme. Suddenly realised I needed to get a wriggle on to meet the deadline because in two weeks time we have visitors arriving from Australia & America. We haven't seen them for 30 yrs so you can imagine we have a lot of preparations to do.
I decided to go with one of my favourite Clarity stamps of a kitten and it has a lovely sentiment stamp with it. Growing up we  had various cats, we loved them all but they were very independent not like our current pet Jasper a black Labrador who loves his creature comforts and human company.
Anyway back to the challenge here's a photo of my finished tag:

It was a very straight forward project , kitten stamped onto a smaller tag and coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment was stamped and embossed onto vellum, torn and wrapped around the main tag. I diecut a butterfly and various feathers ... they are my new favourite Spellbinders dies ( they are so detailed when embossed)

Then it was just a case of what went where ... here is a closeup.

Hope you will be inspired when you see the lovely work of my Design teamies, why not give it a go. The prize winner is selected by so everyone has an equal chance however experienced they are, I look forward to seeing your take on our Pets Challenge
Must dash... xxx Annie
