Safari animals

For some time I have wanted to use this DP on a card.  This is a belated thank you to someone who hosted a dinner for a travel group - we are planning a trip to South Africa in a few weeks.  We do not expect to see blue elephants or purple giraffes, but we do expect to see a lot of animals.  After I had completed the card I realized I could have had a better fit of the bg paper had I cut it in two pieces.  I often struggle to use these larger bg pieces as the pattern usually does not quite fit the layout.  These papers are from a Debbie Mumm stack.
