Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Where the Wild Things Are...

Won't have much spare time this weekend as I'm supervising a Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition (not in the jungle though!), so I had to get this in early. Here's Kathy's dare from DCM........

Hellooooo, Kathy here to set you a really Beastly dare this week! The theme is ANIMAL and you can use anything that's animal inspired - not those diddy little ones like bugs, birds and butterflies (though you can include them in your design of course) but what I'd really like to see is bigger, wilder, more fabulous or fantastic creatures So you could maybe use animal die cuts, animal prints on paper or fabric, or maybe animal words or phrases "grrrrr get down tiger"!!!! You could invent your own wild and wonderful beasties, or go back in time for dinosaurs, or into the world of mythology for all sorts of incredible creatures. How about a card in the shape of a tiger, elephant or monkey? Now, there's a challenge for you.... I'd love you to all go really wild over this one and have loads of beastly fun.

The lion is from DCWV Nana's Kids and I made a 'springy thing' so he bobs about, although he doesn't look very wild! The leaves are Prima and I used a Dauber Duo to make the footprints (sorry, can't remember where the paper is from).
