Africa

The theme this week at The CD Sunday Challenge is "Travels Abroad".   The animals and sunset are from the On the Wild Side cd by Cupcake Crafting.  I cut out a map of Africa and covered it with gilding flakes.  The letters are from an alphabet rubber stamp which I cut out, embossed around the edges and coloured with Cosmic Shimmers.  The leaves cut from a Marianne die.
 
The theme at Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge is "Spots and Stripes".  The giraffe has spots and the zebra has stripes!
