I'm Wild About You

Today's card was created for the latest Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge. To create my card I started by layering some pretty patterned papers from Chickaniddy Twirly Girly 6x6 paper pad onto my white card base. I then stamped the adorable little giraffe from Unity Stamp Company's Wild About You stamp set onto some Copic-friendly white cardstock. I colored the giraffe in colors that would coordinate with the patterned paper and then cut the panel down. Using my EK Success corner chomper I round the left upper and right lower corners on both the card and the focal panel. I adhered the panel to the card using 3M foam tape for a bit of dimension. I added some black dashed lines around the focal panel and the coordinating panel in the center of the card for some added contrast. I added some pretty pink Stickles glitter glue to the balloon and the spots on the critter. For a final touch I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in ebony black. I plan on forwarding this card to my friend Sybrina for the latest Valentine's card drive. Thank you for visiting my blog!
