In the Jungle.... the Mighty Jungle....

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! Doesn't the title just
make you want to sing? It does for me! Today is
Challenge Day over at Cricut Cardz! You are to make a
Child's Birthday card using something you'd see in a Jungle!
Like a Lion, Tiger, Monkey, Giraffe etc. using any colors you'd like!
This was such a fun card to make and easy for me to come up
with since I LOVE making kid's cards! :o) I also want to thank you guys
for the comments yesterday! I appreciate all the support you've
shown me while I go through this new change! I gotta tell ya.... Yesterday
was a much better day for us! After I re-did the schedule they gave
me to suit my needs, it worked like a charm and we got through all
of the days lessons and then some! I knew I needed to change it around!
So today should go just as smoothly! I even got some crafting in! :o)

This is a 5x7 card! Not my normal size but wanted
everything to fit right! :o)

Card stock, Ink - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye (clouds)
I used Bo Bunny Double Dot for all the cuts!
Stamps - (Go Wild!) Joy's Life (lots of Pun)
(It's your Bird-day) My Pink Stamper (Punny-licious)
Black & Brown Pearls (Eyes) - Kaiser Craft
Cartridges - Animal Kingdom (Giraffe) Cut @ 4 3/4"
(Elephant) Cut @ 3" (Elephant Head) Cut @ 1.923x2.667
(Bird) Cut @ 1 1/2"
Create a Critter (Dark Grass) Cut @ 1 1/2" (6x's)
(Light Grass) Cut @ 1 1/2" (4x's)
(Palm Tree) Cut @ 3 1/2"

Here's a nice side view to show the dimension that I added!
I really, really like how this card turned out! Now I just need
someone to send it to! LOL OK... Now it's your turn to create
something great for this fun challenge over at Cricut Cardz!
Remember to stop by the rest of the design teams blogs!
They've all made some terrific Cards! :o) Thanks again for
stopping by! I'll see you tomorrow! Have an AWESOME DAY!!

Love that song,we lived in New Zealand for a couple of years and had a leaving party in a Turkish restaurant and(don't ask me why...think copious amounts of alcohol might be involved!)we split into 2 groups and acted out songs and this was my group song!!Lol.
Anyway,love your card and the shading on the elephant.Great dimension and the colourful bird.
Knew your ability for organising and scheduling would work.Glad it's going well.
