The challenge for this week is Wild Prints............I have to admit, that it was a wild search to find some animal print paper for the challenge, but I was able to salvage some small scraps from my spare paper bin! I've had this DP for awhile and frankly, can't remember where it hailed from, but it sure is pretty and fuzzy and well, just all over yummy!!!!

For my project , I used the fabulous "Tray Chic" . Using my Cricut and the SVG cutting file, I was able to cut this with little effort. To give the black cardstock a little dimension, I used a sizzix embossing folder. I created a quick and easy 3.5x 3.5 gift card by cutting and embossing a 7 x 3.5 piece of Cardstock. The sentiment is from the flowers2share set from The {Stamps}of Life.

I used some Metallic Dew Drops to add a little oomph to the wild strip on the card

Did you KNOW?
 that for every project you submit for the challenge, you will receive a $1.00 gift certificate towards any purchase at the Shop!
