{PIN}spirational Challenge #44 - Feel the Love

This week's challenge at {PIN}spirational is to create a card using this photo as inspiration:


Isn't this a sweet photo?....Here's how I was inspired by the photo:


I found this image of the giraffes in my digi files (I have no idea where I got it!)  I printed the image on white card stock, then colored it and cut it out - using an exacto knife to cut the intricate details.  I cut a white panel 4 x 5.25 inches and embossed the top of the panel with the TH brick EF.  I scored three lines below the "bricks".  The grass was stamped with Old Olive (SU) with a very old stamp from All Night Media.  I popped dotted the giraffes on the panel, and then popped the panel on the white card base.  The three hearts were punched with a MS punch then colored red and pop dotted over the giraffes.  I added a touch of glossy accents to each of the hearts.  I didn't add a sentiment...wasn't sure where to put it, so I decided to leave it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate the time you took to visit and all your wonderful comments! Until next time...

Hugs!

Cute card Susan! :) My sister loves giraffes! The booties were purchased from Twogirlspatterns on Etsy. I would've used your contact, but I don't use Outlook and couldn't find an email address. Sorry!

Hi Susan, not surprised you were inspired by that beautiful picture. I just love your giraffes and how their necks make a heart. Agree it doesn't need a sentiment at all.

Hugs.
