Baby Giraffe

Another fab sketch from Carol for her current challenge:

And this is my take on it. I've used papers from Candy Doodles from Polkadoodles. The giraffe, I can't remember the stamp maker but I've coloured it with watercolour paint and then gone over the top with glitter glue. I've used one of my nesties dies for the shape behind.

The ribbon is really lovely - its sort of a linen mix and I bought a roll of the blue and also pink around 3 or 4 years ago from Hobbycraft when it was in the sale - I think a really big roll was only £1! It's quite thick so does not lend itself to being tied but looks fine as a background!
Buttons and wire from my stash.
