Donald Donkey and Pusskins

I do so love this new Animal collection and just had to have another play this evening with these adorable characters. This time I chose Donald Donkey and Pusskins as a totally dynamic duo. I added Santa hats on them both as I wanted to use some of our new Dream Street Christmas papers. It's night and as you know I don't have a daylight lamp, but here is at least one photo to give you some idea. I shall update the post with a full frontal when I take it (of the card.......!)

It's at an angle here and you can see how I have layered the images to give depth. I tore strips from the paper, scrunched and inked it and added it as border to the top. The card itself has been distressed with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. I am into torn edges and of course have that here also ;o) There's some hand-sewing there also with Lasting Impressions thread.

Edited to add another piccie - still evening and using flash with no daylight, but I'm not sure when I will have time to take another. As you can see on this one I have added a few satin stars and a little glimmer dust on the santa hats.

.......and here are a few daylight pics

Absolutely brilliant! This is so funny, you should see the card I've just made- it'll be on my blog tomorrow. I think we must be on the same wave length.
I can't wait for the full frontal!You're very brave, especially in this cold weather!
