Delightful donkeys

We've had many pets over the years, but one that Geoff has always held out against is a donkey :(.  I think a donkey would look perfect alongside my Norwegian Fjord horse (and of course the Welsh pony) but hey, sometimes you can't get everything in life!  So of course I fell for the donkey image on the new Joann Sheen DVD by Glynn Williams and had to make a card with it!  There are special decoupage images on the CD but I simply printed out 3 times and made my own decoupage.  I followed the sketch at Pear Tree Designs, adding a leaf border cut with my new MS punch that I bought at the NEC.  The sentiment is a Personal Impressions stamp, DP is Papermania and I used my first ever MS punch to make a scalloped border underneath, I think it's called Baroque and it doesn't have the markings to line up that are on the current punches.  A piece of raffia and some green gems finished it off, hope you like my donkey card.
My card is for the following challenges:
Cards for Men - animals, I've kept it un-fussy and used raffia not a ribbon bow so it can be a man card
CD Sunday Challenge - the natural world
Craft Your Passion - 2 of anything (2 donkeys)
Lexi's Creations - anything goes
Crazy4Challenges - square cards
Raise the Bar - scallops and curves
Stamp Insanity -punch drunk - used 2 border punches

PS I have candy - do please join me and play along here
