ABC Challenge - A is for... sees the start of our third run through the alphabet over on the ABC Challenge blog...we thought we'd go easy on you, after last week's tough 'Zero embellishment' challenge. This week's theme is:

'A is for Anything Goes'
(with the added 'extra' theme of 'Animals')

Our challenge this week, is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, who have kindly donated one of their 'Zoo Animals Vacation' set for the winner. To celebrate the start of a new alphabet, we are introducing our 'Top 5'...each week a member of the design team will be choosing their favourite 5 entries and awarding those bloggers with our specially designed 'Top 5' blinkie to display on their blogs.

On to my card, I've used one of the cute Hedgie stamps from my new 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black. The papers are from the 'Sultry' pad (by BasicGrey)...the pink one has been embossed using the Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set (by Hero Arts), the flowers are from Poppicrafts, and I couldn't resist adding a few pieces of Craftwork Cards card candy.

Don't forget to check out the fab cards by the rest of the design team.
