Your turn to showcase the animals for this fortnight at 

Psssttt - took another today in the rain and daylight

Better idea of the colours 

Here you can see the sparkle - subtle but there

Fab card. Love the use of the background stamp and the touch of sparkle. Glad you got round to getting the extra pics - worth the effort shows your work much better.
