Baby giraffe in lavender and lace

So glad you stopped by my blog. Today I would like to show you my last GDT card made for the I love promarkers challenge blog. This week we would like you to use lavender and lace and since we are sponsored by digi doodles the DT members have used their stamps. I got to choose one stamp too and when I came across this baby giraffe I just had to have it. I wasn't sure how easy it would be with the theme this week, but I'm always up for a challenge and when it comes to crafting I do first, think later.

The giraffe is coloured with my promarkers in lilac, lavender and amethyst. I'm very proud to say that I looked through my patterned scrap box and used only small pieces found there. I used 2 different nestabilities to cut out the circles and used an ancient piece of lace I've been having for years around the circle. The tab is a quickutz. I used white ribbon that I coloured with a promarker (great tip). After tying the bow I attached a small safetypin and one of the bells I got at a thriftstore. Wasn't sure when I would use them, but knew they were "good to have" ;)

Finally I embossed the background cardstock with an embossing folder before attaching the rest to it.

Challenges for this card:

All sorts - boy/male
Friday sketchers - sketch
I love promarkers - lavender and lace
Simon says stamp - bingo (I used bottom line; die, emboss, ribbon)
Stamp challenges - something cute
