AAA Cards Game #38

This fortnight at AAA Cards we want to see a hole in your card - sounds like fun to me!

I started my card by die cutting a speech bubble in a piece of white cardstock. This set up my spacing for the rest of the card.

I'm loving this cute little giraffe and coloured him in using flexmarkers. The balloon is actually an egg die cut and I used sewing thread to tie it to the giraffe's tail.

Here's a closer look at my hole:

I lightly drew round my speech bubble hole before stamping the sentiment on the kraft base card.
A matching strip of gold down the right hand side and my card was done.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Wild Thing
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: Clearly Besotted, In Stitches Easter, You Said It
Flexmarkers: putty, nutmeg, satin 

So have I got you thinking about how you're going to interpret this challenge? Hop on over to AAA Cards for more fantastic DT inspiration. Oh and make a date to join us on May 10th for our first birthday blog hop - fantastic giveaways!!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, it's much appreciated. And keep crafting!
