In the Zoo?

Claire asked me to make a card for Ben who will be 1 today.
She asked for something vibrant with lots of animals and a photograph.
We came up with the idea of putting Ben in the Zoo and this is what I made.
I used a CWC 8x8 card and cut an aperture in the front.
I used papers from the Prima So Cute range from Cardinal Colours to cover the front and added a frame from the Pooh & Friends Cricut cartridge.

I created some "wooden" bars and added them behind the frame.
The animals were cut from Create-a-Critter cartridge mounted on 3d foam.
The letters were from the Mickey Font.

The monkeys are hanging around...

Inside I used the photo of Ben being given a shower by an elephant with stickles and Candi.

Have a lovely 1st Birthday Ben.
