In the Jungle


How cute is this little giraffe from Layers of Color...no wonder I have had to make a card with him...too cute to leave alone! He is from the Polka Dot Parade Set along with some other really cute images!

I wanted to give this card a jungle/safari feel and used this fabulous DP from Tracey's Blog Candy. The giraffe has been chalked and the edges of the image inked with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink...I love this ink and got a few at the Craft Fair - this one is Walnut Ink. The leaves are part of a fabulous RAK from the lovely Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz on SCS) I used tattered Angels Shimmer Spray on them and am happy with the results IRL!! The buttons and beads are from my 'stash' - they have added a lovely feel to this card AND great dimension!!!

You know I love to look around for challenges and found Whimsey Challenges earlier this week - it is all about Animal Magic this week, so this card fits!!

Another Challenge I have found is the ABC Challenge which is A is for anything goes with the option of animals!

Thank you for stopping by , I love to know you have been...I do appreciate your comments and read each one - you make my day!! Saturday night is fast winding up here and it has been a relaxed day with the family - my kinda day!! God bless you!
