For The Love Of A Giraffe

Did you all have a nice 4th of July holiday?! I did! We had lots of family, friends and food! What a way to celebrate!  Got the tummy full and now it's time to get back to crafting!

Today is Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch The Bug and wow, do we have some wonderful creativity to show you!  The DT has been hard at work creating, in spite of the holiday, and have fabulous projects for your viewing pleasure!  Remember, Thursdays are the day we bring some of the older Bugaboo Stamps images back into the spotlight, to show you that Oldies are, indeed, Goodies! So hop, skip and jump your way over to Catch The Bug and see the wonderful creations from the DT, today!

My project features the image, Giraffe Heart, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The card layout uses the sketch at Sketches By Carly. (LOVE her sketches!) The paisley printed paper is from my stash, as is the sheer pink ribbon.  Gotta love the yummy pink and green color combo! The partial oval is punched and matted with with punches.  I thought it was a cute little shape to peek out from the circle, just like the little giraffe is peeking out from the heart.  too cute!
