Unstampabelles April challenge - midway post

The April challenge at Unstampabelles is use a animal or bird with the added twist pastel colours
http://unstampabelleschallenges.blogspot.com.au/
This is my card for the midway post

I have used 2  papers (plain and striped) from Kaiser Craft 6" paper pack "Up Up and Away".  Tag from Unique Paper Graphics Graphic 45 chipboard tags which were free with a magazine, ribbon and happy birthday sticker.  Layered all onto black card and then brown card.   Not really pastel colours but it does have the animal.

I hope you will go over to Unstampabelles and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.  Remember NO STAMPS allowed.   This was a real challenge for me as I normally use stamps on my cards.  I have lots of animal or Easter stamps but found it hard to find something different that did not include a stamp..

I would like to add this card into Crafty Hazelnut's Monthly Patterned paper challenge.
