Giraffes Go Non-Traditional

We have a new challenge for you, this week at Shelly's Images. Our theme is "Seeing Spots." Come over and get spotty with us, for your chance to win!

Ohhhh and we definitely have the perfect challenge for our featured image today! Today, we are featuring Giraffe. Remember, this featured image is available, today only, for a special price, in the store, Here.

My project uses the awesome image, Giraffe from Shelly's Images. I went with non traditional colors. After all, who says giraffes have to be traditional?! I've used two different orange spotted papers, paired with black and white stripes. (I think he dreamed he was a zebra for a moment!) The image is colored with Promarkers and attached with foam mounting tape, for dimension. I punched sprigs of black leaves with a punch by Martha Stewart and nestled them under flowers layered in orange and black. The dew drops at the top and flower center are teardrop shaped dewdrop pearls. My card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy.

I am entering this funky non traditional giraffe in the following challenges:
