I made this card for Merci's sketch challenge and SCS color challenge which was to use sage, chocolate and vanilla. I don't have these Stamp n Up colors so I did the best I could. I used a stamp set from Hero Arts and the giraffe is stamped on vellum, embossed with chocolate embossing powder and colored with markers from the back. It's the first time I used the giraffe, he's pretty cute! The dots on the background are stamped with VersaMark ink.
Well tomorrow my son has his promotion from 6th grade, where does the time go? I can't believe I won't have a child in elementary school any more, it's both exciting and sad. We are all starting new phases of our lives.
Have a great week :)
