Animals With Make My Monday

Morning folks and hope you all had a lovely weekend. I'm here to bring you details of the new challenge over at Make My Monday which continuing with the January theme of NATURE, this week we would like to see ANIMALS on your creation.
I decided to make a card with a favourite animal as we have 2 adorable (mostly!) grey Netherland Dwarf bunnies.

My card features another of Craftwork Cards cute Warren stamps of which I have several as I couldn't resist them when they produced a limited edition last year. I stamped him with VersaFine vintage sepia ink and coloured him with Prisma pencils. I cut the panel out with my new Papermania square parenthesis die set.
I made a background paper sponging with Distress inks to colour and as you can see had sunset in mind. I then stamped on some grasses from the Penny Black Enjoy Life clear stamp set with VersaFine Spanish moss.
I added the panels to a card blank covered with Polka Doodles kraft textured paper and finished off with some butterflies from the Penny Black set coloured with Prisma pencils and a Hobby Art stamped sentiment.

The Design Team have come up with some very varied designs to inspire you so don't forget to pop over for a look.

Challenges for my card:
Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes
Gingerloft - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Saturated Colours

Have a good week and thank for looking. Don't forget I have candy and do leave me a comment on the post if you'd like a chance to win.

Fliss, this is an adorable image and the starkness of the white background against the coloured backgrouonds works wonderfully. This week's theme is not a problem ... I just do not have animal stamps, trying to put something together for mid week......
Your themes for the whole month are fab....
