It's Monday and time for this week's challenge at BBTB2.  Our lovely Sharon is hosting the challenge this week and she asked us to create a project using a zoo animal from any cartridge.

I made a card and matching tag using an oldie but goodie cartridge Zooballoo.  A lot of the older cartridges featured silhouette outlines of cuts and I love these and use them often.

My card is  4"x6" and top opening. I covered with pink digital papers from Pink Petticoat and added some bllack and whit polka dot ribbon where the papers met. I used the silhouette outline cut of this darling little elephant from Zooballoo cut at 4", added some googly eyes and some blue Prima flowers  and coloured some gems black with a Sharpie for the centres. The greeting is a rub on.  The matching tag, also from Zooballoo was a plain tag with a square aperture (3") and I used CCR to weld the little elephant in to the aperture,  shadow cut in pink again and then matched the embellishment to the card.  Super fast and simple and and the first time I've not used Foam dots in ages!

Please pop over to BBTB2 and have a look at the fabulous Zoo projects the rest of the DT have created and join in the challenge with us!

Thanks for visiting and Happy Whitsun Bank Holiday (UK) and Happy Memorial Day (US) to you all
