ABC Challenge - A is for Animals

Look!!! A NO NESTIES OR CUTTLEBUG CARD!!!! Very strange for me!




Thought I'd enter this card into the ABC Challenge - is for Animals. This card is a bit of a prototype (and it had a bit of a squash as it was in my pocket, I forgot it was there and I sat down! It looked less creased before I swear). It is a secret panel card and opens a few different ways - it's great because you don't see the sheep until you open the m,iddle compartment. I saw the idea whilst looking through Dawn's Stamping Thought blog so I must credit her with the idea. It was so easy to follow thanks to her video tutorial.
Again, I have used my new Elzybells stamps including the small flower which I repeated several times to create the backing paper! Then coloured them with my whispers pens. Not like me to do something so fiddly but the end result was well worth it.
