Gigi Giraffe

Wow, does this image bring back some really fun memories! Several years ago my husband and I visited the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. While there we went on the caravan tour and got to feed a couple giraffe!!!   The giraffe on my card is the Gigi Giraffe digital stamp by Clear Dollar Stamps.

I paired it with More Mustard cardstock embossed using the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder and digital paper from the Gigi Giraffe stamp set. To embellish the card I wrapped Jute Twine around the card base and added two dark brown buttons threaded with Jute Twine.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
