Only Two, only two

When my husband and I first got married he wanted  two kids, only two.  I wanted four, so we compromised on three, lol! When this challenge came up I thought what a perfect front page of the boys 
12 x 12  scrapbook. 

Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Stampin Sisters in Christ and their challenge is the verse from Genesis 5 about Noah's ark, the animals going in two by two, and the challenge is to use any type of animal, bird or bug in the card or creation. I printed the stamp off twice and cut out to pop up the water, dolphins, lion, hippos.

Here's a closeup of the animals. I computer generated the sentiments and then sponged the inside. 
You can see the image is popped up but is still pretty flat, it is perfect for a scrapbook.
