Animal Crackers!

I love making animal cards so I loved the sound of this weeks DMC challenge - to make cards with animals on them!
It worked out pretty well too because I was trying to think of an idea for a special card I needed to make this weekend and it got an idea in my head and then I just started sketching...

I copied and printed my sketch out on some Basic Grey paper and cut out to decorate the dress and then printed it on plain card to colour in the rest with pencils and paints. The letters are Basic Grey too.
I made another animal card at the weekend with one of the Debs Designs images Debbie has on my site. They're v-cute.
I printed the yo yo doggy on some Scenic Route, Dream Street and then Bazzill card - cut out the bits I wanted and then stuck it all back together again over another of the images that I printed on a half sheet of Bazzill card then folded it to make the base card. I popped some brads on to decorate his collar and there's some glossy accents on his nose too.
Thanks for another fabby challenge DMCers!
