CC Baby Giraffe

Imagine my delight when Betty filled in for Emily, and posted the color challenge this morning!! No problemo!! RED works for me.......and added orange and green. I had fun with punches, my cb, and paintbrush. I hope you like it. We are awaiting the arrival of a baby in our family. My cousin Stefanie is due any minute, maybe today??? Glad it's not me!! We don't know what to expect, so a card with a giraffe in these colors will work for a boy or girl. Will keep you posted!

DDC Purple and Gold

I was up really early this morning, checking for the CC and the DDC. The CC wasn't posted, but the Dare was. Considering I'm a week behind, I thought I had better do the one I owed the group. The hostess for last week was Michelle (sf9erfan), who dared us to make a card with metal, 2 ribbons, and sponging. The sponging and the ribbons you can see pretty well, and I used a single metal brad in the primas. When or even if I decide to send this card, it will surely break the bank....thick with layers, and HEAVY!! The gold in the bg is embossed with French Script, and there's a bit of Baroque Motifs hiding in the bg too. I hope you like it. Off to PT. Hugs.
