MMM week 31 Animals

Oooh goody it's a new challenge over at MMM and with the continuing theme of NATURE the challenge is to use ANIMALS. 


I created 3 cards but wasn't happy with them and then I found this cute raccoon and the rest is history, as they say!
 He's a digi image, not sure where from, and coloured with PM's. I used a clarity corner stamp inked in Spanish Olive around the edges, cut it out with a labels die and matted with black card. The embossing is a Tim Holtz folder inked with Pumice stone DI and the base card is pearlised charcoal cardstock. The sentiment is stamped on a freebie ticket stub from KLdezign.
Thanks for visiting, you know I love to read your comments and return the compliment.

Love the racoon and the embossed panel goes with it so well - great card. Glad you got there in the end - that happens sometimes doesn't it and I reckon we all have days when things don't always go right.
