Little Claire's Challenge 5 - Animals

Arggh, I'm having one of those moments trying to upload this picture!  I'm going to deal with the challenge, then if you want to read my rant you can do it after looking at the card!

The challenge this time at  Little Claire's is animals.  I won a stamp from Little Claire's in the very first challenge I entered on the blog, so I've used that one.  Its a lovely stamp, really easy to colour and I hope I've done it justice.  So the stamp is Little Claire's - Gina and friends, coloured with Promarkers and then the butterflies were lightly glittered (the background is chalked); the paper is from a Brenda Pinnick pad and the flowers are from one of my draws.  The gems are Papermania and the sentiment from Lili of the Valley.

Hope you like.

Now for those of you interested my rant!  I've made it onto a Design Team, Divas by Design - challenges start Weds 4 May, and I've got my card already to go.  Then I wandered around my new team mates blogs and they all have lovely pictures of all their different creations, some with borders, all with their websites on.  So I thought, OK Sarah up your game - you've got to look a bit more professional.  I have been here for the last 45mins trying to get blooming PaintShop Pro to give me a decent pic with a bit of text on.  Can I get the @@@###!!! thing to do it, no I can't!  I've been using Paint just to get the pictures reduced, and I can't get that to put text on my pics either!!  Arrrrggghhhh, I'm getting stressed.

So deep breath, back to the drawing board and try again.

Hope everyone else is having a better day!

A lovely card. Great colour choices as the image, papers and embelishments all compliment each other so well.
