Hello Baby Giraffe

I have loved this image from the moment I saw it on ADFD.  It is called Hello Baby Giraffe! I am so happy to create with it this week!  I tried something different this time...I have never used the dots around an image but I must say I had so much fun dotting this little giraffe!  I also popped the ear on the first card since it didn't fit inside the deckled frame.  Love the dimension it gave to the card!   I wasn't able to locate any purple pearls so I inked them up to match! I also love using the stitching lines.  I see that it is a little crooked although it isn't as noticeable in real life!  On occasion I like making two cards...partly because I love the paper choices and partly because I like having extra cards available.

Thanks you, Tammy, for creating such a fun image!
