MMM Challenge 31 - Nature (Animals)

The Nature Theme continues for the month of January 2012 over at Make My Monday. This week, the specific theme is "Animals." How we interpret it, is ours to decide. Although I have a variety of animal stamps that I purchased early on to make cards for the men in our family, I was immediately drawn to a set of Animal stamps by Cavellini for this challenge. I found these vintage-style stamps in a gift shop in Vail, Colorado several years ago and had them shipped home. From the first time I saw them, I just saw them stamped in red ink and nearly every time I stamp with them, I chose red ink! I chose "Festive Berry" Distress Ink this time. A little different this time is balancing the red with mostly yellow. When I finished my card, I felt as though it just needed something. I decided some gingham check was in order and I really like what it adds to the card. The numerals are from Artistic Outpost. Embellishments include vintage buttons I received for Christmas, Baker's Twine and a red dotted bow I found at Michael's. I am thinking this might be a cute card for my youngest grandson who soon turns "one!" Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with for the challenge. Thanks, as always for stopping by.
