Challenge #2 at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

     It's the first day of May and also the start of our second challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies where we are truly an Anything Goes challenge - meaning you can create any kind of project with only one requirement - you must feature a creature on it.

     We are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy this month and they have all sorts of wonderful critters and creatures among their fun images.  I chose to use "Flying Pegasus" this time.

     I colored the image with my ProMarkers, then cut it with a stitched die from CUTplorations.    I matted it with a die cut frame (Gina Marie Dies.)   I found two different, sheer, ribbons in my stash and layered them together before wrapping them around the card front.  I added the image piece, angled for some interest, and then trimmed those corners of it which overhung the edges of the card front.

     I tied a bow with the topmost ribbon and then added the sentiment.  I know it's pretty CAS but I wanted to showcase the image in that marvelous frame, not cover it up with embellishments.  :-D
