Happy Labor Day!


It's Friday....you know what that means? Another Blogger's Challenge. This week's challenge was to make a labor day card....either a patriotic card or a baby card.

As I don't own many patriotic sets, I thought I would make a card for a baby girl. The adorable giraffe comes from the Wild About You stamp set. The sentiment comes from the brand new Level 1 Hostess set called Best Yet.

The focal image is stamped with So Saffron ink. I added definition to the image by using my Close to Cocoa marker on the eye, mouth, horns and tail. I also doodled some dots around the edges for more visual interest. After sponging the edges lightly with Close to Cocoa ink, I matted the image on Close to Cocoa cardstock.

The striped paper comes from the brand new Pink Pirouette Prints Pack designer series paper. The new patterns are gorgeous!!! I used my beloved Scallop Edge punch on the top edge (seriously, if you do not own this punch, what are YOU waiting for????? It's awesome!!!!).

The sentiment is punch using the 1 1/4" square punch which is set atop a piece of Certainly Celery punched with the brand new Scallop Square punch.

The final touches include some Certainly Celery photo corners and wide grosgrain ribbon.

Now I just need to know someone who has a little girl to give this card to!!!
