Jeremy Giraffe

Good afternoon, it's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and our theme this fortnight is 'SCHOOL DAYS/FOR A CHILD'.

This week we have two fab sponsors:

Bugaboo Stamps
 Prize - 7 digital images

and

Prize - $10 gift card

I decided to use one of my own images again, I have so many it seems a shame not to use them. This is my card:


The image is Jeremy Popping Around, there are two versions of this image and they both have their own sentiment but I decided to use one of the new Crafty Pad Happy Birthday Sentiments because I wanted to make it look a little like a Sun.

Jeremy has been coloured with ProMarkers and a cloudy back ground has been created with distress inks and a mask.  I cut around one side of the image to add some extra interest to the card:


I have kept things relatively simple again, the papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and my embellishments are some card candy from my stash and some ric rac, also from my stash.

You can see that I have cut around the edge of the image a little better in this photograph:


This is the inside of my card that has been decorated to complement the front:
