Meerkat Birthday Card

My gran absolutely loves meerkats so when I saw this image from Delicious Doodles I knew exactly what I wanted to do for her birthday card. I've coloured the image with my trusty old Crayola coloured pencils, as I really struggled to get the right shades. I went out of my comfort zone by using a coloured base card, which I stamped directly onto to tie in with the image.



I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  2. What a fabulous card, I love the coloured card base and the stamping. Your gran's sure to love it. I hope you put "Simples" on it somewhere (presuming she's seen the meerkat advert!)
