Creative Belli Challenge 112-Animals

  Today I combined the Belli Challenge- Animals- with the CDAC digi embellishment challenge hosted by Daisy Doodles.  The image is provided and I am to use three embellishments.
 I used the Copic Spica pen and highlighted all of the Cuttlebug swirls and the tail of the bunny. I used 4 different fibers for the ribbon and I used a Nestability behind the main image. IRL the background is much softer and shimmery looking.  The sentiment is an older one- from Eureka or Biblical Impressions (I think).....

The Premise of the Belli challenge is to use your old and forgotten embellishments. I recently found 5 cards of fibers I have had for years-back in the day when I was sewing crazy patch purses....... The background is a Technique Junkies Scraped Oil Pastels, and I made it before my wrist surgery (which was 8/08).......
