Karen Burniston Designer challenge Part 2 - Party Animals

Firstly, Happy Christmas to you all. I hope you have had a lovely time and maybe Santa got you some new crafty goodies?  I have had a lovely couple of days with family, so much so I nearly lost a day! I thought today was Sunday and that I could make this card tomorrow!  eeeekkk!  Good job I realised with enough time to actually make it, and by the skin of my teeth I am indeed posting it on Monday.  PHEW.

Sandy Diller chose this months Challenge Theme and it was - "Party Animals" - use any of the Character dies for a card celebrating the New Year or anything else! 

These Designer Challenges are such fun to do.  Karen chooses the best themes and its been fun to mix up the Challenges with one of my fellow Designers picking a theme for the second part of the month and when thinking about these challenges and these wonderful woman that I have joined for month after month and I cant help but think "It's been AMAZING"  and that is where the inspiration for my card came.  

The fact that there are 10 characters are on the card and there are 10 of us is incidental, and I will let you all choose who is who :) 

So onto my card.  

The card had to be BIG to accommodate all the animals so I used a 12 x 8 card piece of cardstock and folded it in half.

I then used the Lots of Pops die and cut this 3 times into then card to createan array of platforms.  Then onto the fun part of cutting and decorating the characters.  First up we have Whiskers the cat, Honey Bear, Dutch the Fox, Hoppy the frog, Poppy the Owl, Buster the Dog, Snowball the Sheep, Lucky the Rabbit, Baker the Beaver and in top place Jinks the Monkey.

I used the pole and flags from the Lots of Pops set to hang some colourful flags.

You can see from the side how much dimension there is.  But it will still fold flat!

Please check out the links to the top left, where all my fellow Designers will show you their cards.  Tomorrow Karen will be posting her card to her blog so don't forget to hop on over there too.
