Baby Giraffe

This card was almost not going to happen.  Do you ever get stumped when trying to make something and then want to crumple it up and throw it out?  I must have looked at this stamp for ten minutes wondering what I was going to do with it.  I wanted something simple, and feminine because it was getting late and I had lost my mojo!  This is what I ended up with and have to say, I am pleased with the result.  Just so you know, I tried a rhinestone for the eye and took it off.  It looked like one of those goldfish with the bulging eyes.  It creeped me out a bit since the eye was almost as big as the head!  So I carefully took off the rhinestone and replaced it with a circle of crumb cake.  This way it doesn't shout "EYE!"  Hope you like it!

The spots on the giraffe were made with the tiniest circles from the Two Step Owl Punch.  I liked the dimension it added to the card. 

Thanks for stopping by!
