You're Giraffic!

Happy Friday Eve!  I don't know about you, but I'm sure ready for the weekend.  I'm looking forward to some time to relax (aka craft!!) and maybe get out and play some golf too if the weather cooperates.

Last weekend over at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog, the design team members each hosted a different challenge.  These challenges were just what I needed to help get my creative juices flowing!  Denine hosted an animal challenge and wants us to create animal cards.  I got the Animal Antics cartridge a while back and thought this challenge would be a perfect opportunity to use it.  I also pulled out my animal-themed stamp sets and this is what I came up with.

I saw this cute giraffe in the hot air balloon and decided I just had to cut him out.

The best part of this card......I used scraps for everything except the card base.  I love when I can use up some scraps!!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card!!
