...wild about you...

Here I am again ...this is my second DT card for today, this one is for our new Challenge at Fab N Funky, this week hosted by our lovely Wends. The theme she has chosen is 'Wild about you' either Valentines or feature a wild animal, so something for everyone! We're sponsored this week by the fabulous Paper Shelter and the DT were given some lovely images to choose from. I chose to use this cute couple, 'Can't take my eyes off you',  gazing adoringly into each other's eyes...the image comes with a coloured version and backing papers as well as the line drawing...but I wanted a different look so decided to colour using shades of grey (a lot less than 50 ;)) I added some die cuts, a bow and bead trim and a little heart brad. The colours haven't photographed too well, the white is much brighter IRL.

I'll be back again with my 3rd and final (promise) post today!
