On Safari

Welcome to my new followers, Judy, Vinita Jane, Bearlea, AnnaRobyn, Michele, Alicia, LeAnne, Pat, Valerija, Alice, and Leanne, Denise, scrAPpamondo and Glennis.  (I can't seem to find a link for a few of the blogs.) I hope you are able to visit again often.

My camera has gone in for repair this week.  Although it's under guarantee it will take up to SIX weeks to repair!!  I'm taking photos on my mobile phone for my blog, so hopefully the light will be good enough to get decent photos of my cards.  This one seemed to come out okay.
I've had the Little Claire 'Elephants' silhouette stamp for quite a while, but I've never got round to using it.  When we received an invitation to a Safari themed 50th birthday party, I knew it was the perfect stamp to use for the birthday girl.  I made the background with Ink Dusters and Adirondack inkpad using 'Red Pepper', 'Sunset Orange' and 'Sunshine Yellow'.  The image is stamped with Versafine 'Onyx Black'.  I used Memory Box 'Stitched Rectangles' for matting and layering.

I am joining in the following challenges with my card:


There is some blog candy on my blog HERE to give away.
