Baby Giraffe

I don't get many opportunities to make baby cards, so I really enjoyed making this one. I colored the giraffe with Prisma colored pencils blended with Goo Gone. The background behind the giraffe is vellum CS run through the polka dot Cuttlebug embossing folder. The scalloped frame is a Sizzix die. I love the softness of this card. I hope you like it, too.

Mystery Image Challenge

This is a card I made for a Mystery Image Challenge that I participated in last month. The challenge hostess sends each participant the same stamped images and we each make a card with it and send to the person we get assigned. It is so fun to see what everyone comes up with using the same image. It is amazing how different each card can be.

I colored the balerina with Prisma colored pencils blended with Goo Gone. I colored and cut out the balerina costume and popped it up and added glitter (love my glitter). I framed her using a Sizzix oval frame and used my white gel pen to make dots on the scallops. Here is the recipe:
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Pink Pirouette printed paper, Certainly Celery and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Sizzix scallop oval frame, 2 oval punches (SU), Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder, lt. pink dotted organdy ribbon, paper piercer, white gel pen and a rhinestone
