I was lucky enough to win some digi's from Pink Gem this week and as soon as this cute little giraffe arrived I wanted to colour her up. While colouring I thought how sweet this would be for a new baby girl card, so this afternoon I dumped the duster and finished off this card using the sketch over at A gem of a Challenge. My mojo wouldn't run to a freestyle arrangement as well as colouring and sorting out matching papers :-) !!!!
I'm feeling quite proud of the end result, I've made quite a few masculine cards lately and it was nice to rummage through the embellishments and go a bit girly for a change!! I also used up some bits and pieces that I've had for ages. The paper is Chatterbox scrapbook walls which I bought in the January sales 3 years ago and the lace was a RAK from 2 years ago and the peach satin ribbon, underneath the lace to make it stand out a bit more, has been in my ribbon basket forever!!
Here's a closer look at the details. I do wish the light was better, IRL the colours are more of a soft peach and pale coral!
Thanks for looking today and for any comments you might leave, they are all special to me!!
