I made this card for a baby shower this weekend. I've made a quilt, receiving blanket and bibs with a Noah's Ark print. The Ark is made by hand. I started with an oval for the base and cut the boat shape then used a big oval SU punch to make the green edge. The top is a rectangle and the modern label punch for the green. Noah, the elephant, giraffe and ostrich are from CTMH Animal Parade which also has an ark, but it wasn't big enough for the card I visioned. The penguin is from Polar Pals. The whale and turtle are from Fox & Friends and the others are from Zoofari. The Rainbow is a DRS design that has a butterfly and flowers on the base of the rainbow. I just cut out the rainbow part that I needed. I'm sure I spent way too long on this card as the housework should have been getting done, but I needed the ark to overflow with animals, two by two, of course.
