Gritty Giraffe Ballerina

Afternoon my Craft Friends and Followers

I hope you are all having a fabulous Monday and doing something good.  Me I am in my craft room (as usual I hear you all say).  I have one of the busiest weeks this week as I have 3 lots of Design team work to get finished before next Sunday and I need to do my hubby's birthday card again, I have made him one but can I find it?  I put it away so he wouldn't see it and I can't remember where it is this safe place!!!!!!!

Anyway I made this card a few weeks back and found it whilst I was looking for hubby's card.  I have used Sherri Baldy's Gritty Giraffe Ballerina which you can purchase here.  This is just one of the fabulous digi's you can purchase from Scrapbook Stamp Society I just love these cute giraffe characters and have made a couple of cards in the range.

Recipe & Method

1.  Card base is from Kanban Crafts. 
2.  The first layer is taken from My Craft Studio Papercrafty Library Men-y Happy Returns, giraffe print which I have tiled and cut out using Spellbinder die Labels 20.
3.  Gritty has been printed onto Supersmooth card and then cut out using Spellbinder die Labels 20.  I have coloured the giraffe with Derwent watercolour pencils and inked the edges with Dew Drops VersaMagic Gingerbread and Mango.
4.  I have added Card Candy around the edges and a pair of ballerina slippers from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today

I love your design and colouring Linda so beautiful and delicate. I love your colouring of the giraffelina but I had to smile at the legwarmers can you imagine how long they would have to be for a real giraffe lol but your little ballerina slippers are the most adorable embellishment ever! I can't help going back for a close look at her face she is just so pleased with herself Vee xx
