Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #30

It's Challenge 30 at Crafty Cardmakers and we have been given a theme of Around the World

I have chosen Africa after rummaging through some stamped images I had from a forum sap some years ago. I was inspired to use the different images and some animal print items that I have had in my stash for a very long time.

I made a DL size dark brown card and cut a leopard print paper smaller to show a border. . I wrapped funky fibres around the card and threaded with beads which I got in an assorted pack from Poundland years ago. You know, one of those 'they will come in handy' purchases that you NEVER use, well I've only gone and used them !!!

I am really pleased with how this card turned out. Initially I was going to do a French/Parisienne theme but this card almost came together all on it's own. Perhaps my crafty mojo is starting to return???
