Oh Boy!

The challenge at DeNami Design was to create a boy card.  Always a struggle no matter what images I am using!!


I knew I wanted to use the E140 Giraffe from the latest release and stamp him on design paper.  I think he is absolutely adorable.  I actually had him on a different paper and just couldn't get the card to come together.  Stamped him on the polka-dots and that was all it took.  Although, the card still didn't turn out like I envisioned it!!  I stamped the D123 Small Stitched Circle on a scallop and popped the giraffe up with some foam leftovers from trimming stamps.  I don't have the Happy Birthday sentiment, so I used the word "birthday" from the N114 "Hoppy" Birthday Frogs.  I love when you can make stamps do extra duty!  I have to thank Sue Lelli for sending me the baker's twine.  I still haven't gotten around to buying any, Sue!  But don't worry, I will soon!

I just discovered that my card also fits the Tangled Up challenge at Wee Memories this week...use twine on your card!  So I am submitting my card for that challenge too!

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
