A Giraffe with a necktie...

It could only be a MelJen's Designs creation!! if you haven't visited her, please do - she is a fantastic artist and has wonderful digi stamps (including freebies on Mondays)!!

I've used some yellow marbly paper from a magazine pack, the orange paper is, believe it or not, the envelope from my Orange mobile bill! Then some ribbon, a bow, flowers & a brad from Papermania Capsule Sunshine collection! And a peel off sentiment/stars!

Challenges I'm entering:
Friday Sketchers #97 - Sketch
MelJen's Featured Stamper!!
Stamping for the Weekend #36 - Ribbons & bows
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle #35 - Birthday
Crafty Ann's Challenge #12 - Let the Sunshine In
