Dustin's Animal Mad!

Here's my latest card using a Dustin Pike Digi image, which I'm sure I won some time back in a challenge and have never used! (naughty me!)
I've sort of used, (my image was a little too big to fit, or my card was too small so my second backing paper is a bit longer!) ~ the sketch over on Sweet Stop sketch, Although I've put my eyelash-wool-ribbon under the image, and added buttons and a party squiggle as extras.

I actually printed out the Ark four times and used three of them so I could 3D it by just cutting off different layers and fixing them together with silicone glue.
The rainbow papers are freebies called Splish Splash from way back in March 2009 from Paper Crafts Inspirations Magazine (you get Wellington boots, sentiments,'paper' ribbons and umbrella's etc too)
I wanted clouds and rainbows (get it? rain ark...rainbow???!...I'm not just a pretty face...honest, I'm not!) and I knew I had these papers somewhere on my computer. (Poor thing, if it were a suitcase it would be huge, bulging out at the seams and weigh well over a ton!!)
The paler blue spotty papers I linked the other day (Crafts-On-The-Net) from the 'Simply Home Made Magazine'
I've also used a Woodware scalloped punch, an Xcut scalloped border punch and Nestabilities.
The sentiment I did on the computer. I did it wonky on purpose!
The font is a freebie, it's called You Are What You Eat (yes, it is!) and you can download that here!
