Crafty Catz Challenge 79 - Children's Card

Hi Peeps!

I am super excited that I finally get to share my fabulous news with everyone today!  I was invited to join the talented ladies on the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge Design Team!!!  I am thrilled to join the team and hope that you will join in on the fun with us each week!

This week we are sponsored by Elephantastic and the challenge is to create a children's card.  Here is my creation, using Barney from Elephantastic:
Barney was coloured using pencil crayons and popped up using foam dots.  I decided that Barney would probably like a home and a bone to chew, so I paper peiced these using patterns from My Scrap Chick.  Carstock is Bazzill, papers are 3 bugs in a rug, and pinking edge was made with Fiscars scissors.  Other embellishments include red brads, hemp twine and a little paw button from my stash.  The sentiment was computer generated - I don't think I can resist a pun! 

Here is the artsy view showing the dimension:

If you have not already done so, pop on over to the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous cards.  I hope you can join in with us this week and can't wait to see what you come up with!

Other challenges this card fits:

Creative Inspirations - Pets/animals
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Lots of Layers
Delightful challenges - Paper peicing

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,
