It's A Jungle Out There

Today at Double D challenges
there is a fun and a bit 'unique' theme going on!

The theme is 
'It's A Jungle Out There'!

There is also a fun mood board to inspire you.

I had lots and I mean LOTS of jungle type stamps and dies to choose from....
from cutsie to the 'real' thing....
but oh no, not ME,
I had to purchase a die just for this challenge lol!

The die is from Amy Designs Wild Animals.

It threw me off a bit to decide on what color card stock to die cut from.
I had initially thought of either black or brown 
but in the end I went with a dark gray.

The card stock base is from a NBUS package of 'in-color' SU papers (2013-2014),
so am not sure of the exact color (I have had this forever)!

The paper under the die cut itself is from
 Echo Park's Jungle Safari 6X6 paper pad,
which just happens to be our prize this time, 
a pad of this!!

I used Tutti Designs Nesting Banner dies to stamp my sentiment on
which is from the Sparkle N Sprinkle set
'Leo The Lion'.

I added a banana button
(only I could have a banana button right?
but a long while back (few years actually)
I won a cute little jungle packet from a challenge
which is also where the 'animal' gems came from.

Look at all the detail this die has

So anyhow let's see your 'jungle' cards 
and make sure to head on over to 
Double D challenges and see all the awesome DT creations!!

Entering the following challenges:

What a brilliant card and the perfect frame for the challenge!... It sometimes feels like a zoo here with the cats especially when the visitors don't get on with mine... Drive me mad every day! Hope all is well with you...
