Just Us Girls #239- A Sketch!

Hi!  Wow, these weeks are so busy (and I'm tired every night!).  I'm not getting the cards made that I would like, but this weekend I'm going to a baby shower.  My good friend, Eileen is going to be a grandma very soon!  I had to get a card done to go with the gifts and gift certificate we are giving the mom to be.

Since, I am hosting the Just Us Girls challenge this week, I decided to use my own sketch for our shower card!  Two birds, one stone, ya know!?
I used Papertrey Ink's set called Sweet Baby along with Blueberry and some Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up that I have hoarded.  I used my new set, Polka Dots III for the spotted background.  Most of the stamping is done in Blueberry Sky.  The darker blue is Midnight Muse.
My giraffe is cut with the coordinating die and mounted on dimensional pieces. I used MFT stitched dies and Fishtail Flags for mounting my image and sentiments.
I guess that's it except to say Please visit our blog at the link above to see the DT gals inspirational cards!  We also have Barbara along for the month as our May Guest Designer!  Welcome, Barbara!
AND, we hope you'll also join us this week and link your card up with Mr. Linky on the blog by Thursday, May 8 at 9:00 pm.  That's when I'll pick our weekly winner known as our Chick of the Week!!

Have a great day and an even greater weekend!

I am often at a loss for baby cards. I am going to keep this one in mind. Love the colors and the image. Good think that at my age, I don't need many of them.
