Giraffe

 Hi there folks,

Sharing with you my monthly DT inspiration for LeAnn's World. This month I am using this super animal image Giraffe. Isn't he just adorable?!!! I am a bit late posting this, but have good reason...I chose him, as my wee Granddaughter loves her yellow giraffe comforter called Geoffrey...and as it was her 2nd birthday, I thought it was just ideal for her. This is what I created...

On a 8x8 card blank, I matt and layered pink linen card, pink/cream gingham paper and cream hammered card. The image, I printed, coloured with promarkers then carefull cut out. I placed it as shown, along with die cut balloon number and name. I added the die cut 'Happy Birthday' and 'Granddaughter' then finished off with 2 die cut flowers and foilage, not forgeting some bling too!

Materials Used
LeAnn's World 101 - 'Giraffe' Image
Promarkers - Pastel Yellow, Sandstone and Shale
