Valentine 2011 - Day 3 - What's up Giraffe?

Happy Wednesday of Valentine's week here on greengirlscraps!

Today I'm displaying a card I made for the other little girl at daycare.  This little girl loves giraffes.  At a zoo near us, you can feed the giraffes from a tall platform and she has loved doing so since she was a tiny baby.  She's just always loved it!

This giraffe is from Create a Critter, as well as the heart balloon and the clouds in the background.  I chose to make this a tall card since I wanted a big giraffe.  It is about 3.5 x 7 if I remember correctly.

I used my Cuttlebug folders to emboss the grass at the bottom of the card and to emboss the clouds in the sky.  I also inked the clouds with baby blue ink from Memories (which I got on clearance at Joanns last week!).  I also used some dark green to emboss the edge of the grass.  I really love the cloud inking.  I think it makes it look great!
The inside of the card has a stamp from MyPinkStamper that says "What's up?" and then another stamp that says "Happy Valentine's Day!"

I am absolutely in love with this card and the way it turned out.  Hope you like it!!
