Born to Be Wild Collage

I have never made a collage card but when Colleen at Speedy the Cat's Challenge asked that we make one, I was up for the challenge. I decided that I wanted to use some of the great wild animal stamps from Mark's Finest Papers that are so fun and when I found the perfect pattern paper in my stash, this card came together very quickly. I stamped the sentiment in the center as a focus in the darkest ink to make it stand out. I then stamped 4 additional images-elephant, giraffes, tiger eyes, tree- directly on my PP. I then added a giraffe print ribbon making a ruffle on the side. I stamped another sentiment on watercolor paper and tore it out and popped it up with dimensionals.  My finishing touches were the pearls colored with green Copics for the tiger eyes and a giraffe charm sewn on with twine.
