Percy-licious

I ordered some custom digi stamps from the talented and ever-generous Therese Travis, and I couldn't wait to play with the digi she did of our iguana Percy! He's about 10 now and is part of our little family. Mom keeps a photo of her "grandiguana" in her wallet. Sadly, we haven't had much luck finding good crafting materials with iguanas. Geckos, maybe, but not so much the soft-hearted, spiky-backed ancestors of our sweet Percy.

Therese did an incredible job. As soon as I saw the perfect tail I knew I had to make the tail stripes change color. It's just a simple spin card, but it's one of my favorite tricks and I know I'll get a lot of use out of this design.

It's also my first card for a Craft your Passion challenge.
