Hair Bow Challenge 6: Who says you can't work with animals?

The theme for our sixth challenge is taken from the Hollywood phrase, "Never work with animals!" But we will! :) You may make a boutique bow or bow set, a headband, a bowband, a funky loopy bow, a fascinator, a hair flower -- basically, anything you've fashioned out of ribbon or fabric -- following an animal theme. The hair bow or flower must be made from a Birdsong tutorial or pattern. You can focus on any type of animal you like. Cute and cuddly kittens? Funky monkeys? Horses? The animal kingdom is yours.
There will be two prizes again! The first will be chosen by our talented judge, Melissa of The Bowvine. The winner of the Judge's Choice Award will receive a $15 gift certificate from The Ribbon Retreat!
The second way to win a prize is through "Voter's Choice." I'll put all the bows on the blog and will host a poll in the sidebar beginning Tuesday, December 13. Invite your friends and relatives to vote for your bow! The winner of the Voter's Choice Award will receive a FREE e-book from Birdsong Bows and Patterns.
To enter, E-mail your best photograph of your finished product (either on a model or not) to me at deanna [at] birdsongbows.com by 2:59 a.m Pacific time (11:59 p.m. Eastern) on Monday, Dec. 12 (so, basically before you go to bed Monday night). Please keep your photos around 600 pixels wide, so that they're neither too big nor too small. And remember: They must be recognizably made using at least one Birdsong tutorial or pattern. No more than one entry/photo per contestant, please. If you're on Flickr, feel free to post a photo to the Birdsong Flickr Photo Group as well, for all to see!
Good luck! I can't wait to see your entries. :)
