Safari Anyone?

Hello everyone. Happy Tuesday to ya! I had so much fun making this card today. The idea has been in my head since I saw the Mojo Monday #227 sketch and I finally got to sit down and put it into paper. I hope you like it.

 I used Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, and Naturals Ivory cardstock. I just love the Naturals Ivory for anything "naturey" (is that a word?). I used Espresso ink for the stamped images and Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake with my blender pen for coloring in the giraffe. The texture on the background piece is a non - Stampin' Up (or "contraband" if you are using Lynnette lingo) emboss folder.

For embellishments I used a Crumb Cake button out of the Deck the Halls designer button pack (currently on the Clearance Rack @ and then tied a little linen thread thru the holes. The burlap I purchased from a major retail craft store. Oh, and ladies don't forget the insides of your cards!! I just love how it is almost like getting a second card when you open the card up and the inside is as pretty as the outside!

Hot off the presses! We demonstrators got a sneak peek of a few things that will be in the new 2012 - 2013 Idea Book and Catalog today. I think you are gonna love it!! We aren't allowed to show you any pictures or flyers but we can create projects with some of the new goodies and post pics of those! Soooo, as soon as I get my order in and get to creating you will all be the first to know!! Hope you have a great day!
