Animals and Bugs over at the Ranch PLUS a DT Call

Hi all, Posse 1 challenge you this week to use animals/bugs on your creation, we have another wonderful sponsor this week, Whimsy Stamps have given the Posse a couple of images to play with and mine was 'Hang In There' such a cute image.

I did colour the image using my copics, then had this idea and so I started again, such a chore lol!! Had the idea to have two tortoises hanging in there, so flipped the image (or hubby did I forgot how again hehe).

Now calling this a heart easel card, but I could be wrong not sure if the base has to match the top, did do this but didn't look right. I got to play with my MS punches again, love them as a border. The hearts and little butterflies are also from MS punches. The flower is also coloured using copics. Now I did have more flowers coloured up but looked to much with the floral dsp. Kindyglitz around the edges. Morgan created the sentiment for me after much family discussion on what it should be lol!
I used clear spica pen on the girl tortoise actually gives her a gold sparkle, then used special effects for the shell, eyes and centre of the flowers.

The Winner will received five images of their choice from our Sponsors Whimsy Stamps and also our Winners Badge for display on their blog

We will choose the top 3 whom this week will all receive one image of their choice from CJ's store along with the Top 3 Badge for their blog
