Stamping Vacation Animal Applause Challenge

Hi it is a busy day for my blog today, I have a few DT projects coming up for you to view, they are scheduled so I do hope that blogger is working well.  I have been working quietly behind the scenes, so to speak, creating my DT work. this is the first one that I am showing today which is for this months 
the requirement is to use an image of an animal that is not soft and has no fur.
I have always been a lover of animals but I did have to think about this one and had to go through my very large stamp collection to see what I had and I found this little fellow, well not so little in real life and he is definitely not soft or hairy so I thought he fitted the bill perfectly.
 
I decided on a black and white theme, the papers are Papermania, I added some card candy, black lace and sentiment as well as the image which I stamped with Momento Black Tuxedo ink, I also used my 'Sand' stamp for the around the edge effect.
I hope you like my card and please come join us this month in the Animal Applause Challenge. 
After I made this card I then started thinking of animals that fall into this category like, Alligators, Crocodiles, Lizards, Snakes and the list goes on, typical that the old grey cells didn't work till after the event lol.
Hugs to all see you later.
