Double D - Book Covers

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
 Diane is our host for today's challenge and the theme is:
Anything you see on these covers!   Colors ~ Images ~ Words
Tell us what it was that inspired you from the covers.
and here's the book covers inspiration board she has created 
to help get you started . . .
 This one really made me think!  So much to choose from in these fabulous book covers but I finally decided when that cute scene with the Tiger ... it just kept drawing me back!!

This card is A7 (5x7) in size to accommodate the  Amy Designs Jungle Frame.
Other dies used are:
Amy Design - Dies - Wild Animals 2 - Spider Monkey
Lawn Fawn - Grassy Hillside Borders Dies
 Marianne Collectibles - Lion (COL1455)
Marianne Design Collectables Cutting Dies - Eline's Lion/Tiger COL1455 
 ScrapMan - Elephants (used on the inside of my card)
ScrapMan - Dies - Elephants
 Sue Wilson - Safari Collection 
(I've used one of the sentiments but fussy cut it so I could
use one part on the front and the other part on the inside of my card).
I had so much creating this jungle scene!
I couldn't find exactly what I was wanting for the bottom portion of this card
so I die cut the top inside portion of the frame again and
simply 'flipped it over' to create the foliage on the bottom. 

Here's a peek at the inside . . .

So be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

Here's the prize you'll be playing for this time around ...
