SOMEONE LIKE YOU {DigiStamps4Joy Challenge 102 - Animals}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #102}

Another design team project for our current challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog. The theme for this fortnight is ANIMALS.  Meerkats are my most favourite animal so it was just so obvious that I would incorporate some of these cute critters on this card.

I have used the following images from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. MEERKAT MERVYN
  2. MISTERI AS CINDERS
The images have been coloured with H2O Derwent Pencils and a Blender Pencils.  The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The design papers are from BoBunny and BasicGrey and the buttons and raffia are from my stash.  Some of the edges have been distressed with a Chiswick paper distresser.

Looking forward to seeing your 'ANIMAL' creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #102.
