My Beloved Africa

Just a very quick post to share a card I have made with a wonderful Africa theme.  I was born in Africa may moons ago lol, in Nigeria, later I moved to Zambia and then the final country I lived in was Kenya where I met my hubby and had our two wonderful daughters.  We, as a family, returned to the UK back in 85 but Africa lives deep within our hearts, such a wonderful experience I have truly had the privilege of experiencing.

For this card I used Distress Oxides for the background and stamps from the Creative Stampers magazine and also from the Africa set by Sheena Douglas,  There really is a bit of Africa on this card as the backing paper behind the image layer is some hand made paper I picked up in Kenya on our last visit a couple of years ago and is made from elephant poo and the local newspaper.  It is the first time I have used the paper as it is a bit special :) :) :)
