Crafty Gals Monthly Challenge - August 2012

It's time for the monthly Crafty Gals challenge.  Carolina was our hostess this month.  Here is the challange that issued to us this month:

"Two of my son's are having birthdays this next months. Since we didn't do any b-day cards I challenge you all to do one using an animal character and four shapes of any sort somewhere in the card plus colours red and blue. Is this too much to ask???. Good luck."

Below is the card that I created for the challenge.  Hopefully it is a card that kids would like to receive.  I know that my three year-old loves giraffes.  She thinks they are all named Melman like the giraffe in the Madagascar movies.



Stamps:  In the Wild, Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU!)
Cardstock:  SU! Cherry Cobbler, Pacific Point, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Misc: Stars embossing folder, Oval and Scalloped Oval punches, Rhinestones

  13. The colors in this go well together and I think it would make a great masculine card. This is an area that I totally struggle in.
