Laughing Giraffe

Hello! I hope you had a fab weekend :)
Monday means it's time for a brand new I {heart}sketches challenge at From The Heart Stamps :)

Here's the sketch...

The twist this time is to use animals.
Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too. It's in the rules! ;)

Here's my card...

I chose to go with the twist this time, and I used one of the images from Laughing Giraffes, coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment isn't with this image, but it IS one of the sentiments that you get with Party Hat Birdbrain.
Papers used here are from My Mind's Eye (Stella & Rose, Mabel), and I found a scrap piece of hard semi-transparent pale teal plastic in my scraps which worked perfectly behind the ornate frame (cArt-Us die), secured with white eyelets.
I punched leaves from the same papers to decorate, using an ash leaf punch by Woodware.

I shall be entering this card in to the following challenges:
Crafting From The Heart - always anything goes
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Shopping Our Stash - show us your snark
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - frame it
Ribbon Girl - everything goes with an image
