Passion for Promarkers - Week 60 - Animal theme

Hello and here we are again with another challenge at Passion For Promarkers.  I so loved visiting everyone who submitted a funny card for last week's challenge - I've had a stupid grin on my face for most of the last week!!

On to this week's challenge, which has actually been set by yours truly!!  I've chosen animals as my theme for the week, which is quite funny really as I don't very often do animal cards!!  It was this image that made me do it - I fell in love with it when I saw it at Doodle Palace Designs and had to use it for my weekend workshop tutorial - hop over to the PFP Weekend Workshop to take a peek!! 
I started preparing the tutorial a couple of weeks ago when I was at my friend, Lesley's, for a crafting and gossiping fix and she very kindly allowed me to use these papers from Sizzix (the wave paper and the little dove is cut out from these papers).  I've also used some Basic Grey papers from the Origins pad.
To add a bit of dimension, I've added the chipboard 'wave' on the front, which I've also coloured with my PMs in Ice Grey 1.  The rainbow and clouds were cut with a QuicKutz die  and the chipboard arrows and 'sun' were from stash.  Finally, the baby letters are from Cosmo Cricket.

For our challenge this week, we're being sponsored by Simon Says Stamps and you could win a gift voucher for a little stash dash in their on-line store!!

I do hope you'll squeeze some time in to take part in my PFP challenge week - can't wait to see your creations using all those lovely animal images that are out there in craftland - just remember to use your Promarkers!!

This card is gorgeous! Your colouring is divine; beautifully coloured animals and I love all the shading on the ark and your wheels are brilliant! Excellent design elements (the papers are actually Debbie Mumm for Joanne's and not Sizzix). Lovely, lovely, lovely card and excellent tutorial! Love Lesley x
