Beware, Giraffe in the Sky

Don't worry! This giraffe is flying by with happy wishes.  This cutie is found in Cricut's Animal Antics and I wanted to make him for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog this week.  The Challenge is "Spring is in the Air", make something with balloons or kites.  I even had to use the Craft Room because we can't get this cartridge on our Gypsy yet.  (I just love my Gypsy!) The balloon and giraffe are cut at 4 inches.  The card base is a cut from Wild Card.

Face Stamp- Peachy Keen, PK-751 Animal Faces
Pattern Paper- American Crafts, Hip Hip Hooray

WOW! What a great card! I just recieved my new cart this week but I haven't had the chance to play with it yet. I didn't know if I'd like it or not but your card had just convinced me that I will love it! That giraffe in the balloon is too cute. Thanks for sharing and for playing along with us at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!

This is so cute! I have to laugh because the first thing I thought of when I saw that image in the handbook was to emboss the basket with that folder, but I hadn't thought of all the other wonderful details you've added. I love your color choices, fun patterns, and the cute way you've done your sentiment :)

I too am a Gypsy fan and have yet to really use craft room. I am going kicking and screaming to it I guess.

I love the giraffe is is wicked cute! The stitching and rounded shape really add to this! Nice job on this card!
