You're an Animal!

Today I am participating in two challenges - the 2RedBananas Banana Split Sunday Challenge and the Friday Sketchers' challenge. 2RB's challenge is to use your favorite animal on a project, and Friday Sketchers is... you guessed it, a sketch. Go to 2RedBananas blog to find out more about the challenge and see what the other DT members have done.
This base of this card is white CS and all of the DP is from Crate Paper's Baby Bee Collection. I adhered a block of the reverse side of Dragonfly on the base with another block of Caterpillar on top of that. There is a block of the front of Dragonfly on the right-hand side, a block of DP to the left of it, then a strip of Dragonfly across all of it. There are three glittered brads on the left side of the strip.
Since the challenge was to use my favorite animal, I finally got a chance to use my giraffe stamp. I love giraffes. I don't know what it is about them, but I think they're cute. I stamped the giraffe from Imaginisce on the reverse side of the Caterpillar DP with brown StazOn ink and colored it with watercolor pencils. I cut it out with Nestabilities Label 1 die and matted it on Caterpillar DP. I used pop dots to adhere it to the front of the card. There are some felt flowers from American Crafts to the right of the image with glittered brads through the centers. On the upper left corner is a piece of ric rac (also by Crate Paper) tied in a knot with a sentiment pop dotted on top of it.
I hope you decide to play along with us this week. Go to 2RB's blog for more info about the challenge.
