Giraffe birthday

Have you heard about April the giraffe in NYC? The have a baby watch going for her, should have a baby any day now. So I thought I would make a birthday card with a little giraffe on it :)

I started by stamping the giraffe and the heart from SSS Wild Cuddly Critters and then masked them off with some sticky notes. I used a dotlets stencil from Penny Black to randomly blend three distress inks on. Then I took the sticky notes off and colored the giraffe and heart with copics. I used the same yellow distress ink on the edges of the base white cardstock to match my cardfront and added a couple of yellow sequins too.

I am sharing this card in a couple of challenges.

CAS(E) this Sketch #215Seize the Birthday and Crafty Gals Corner - anything goes.

I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by :)
