Since we're celebrating a birthday, I went with a Birth Day theme and used the Bouncing Baby stamp set. Isn't that giraffe adorable?
I used the colors in Paper Sweeties August Challenge:
Pretty colors, right? You might want to play along! Visit the Paper Sweeties Blog for all the information.
My card features a flat shaker element. I really like it as an alternative to the bulk that a normal shaker piece can add. In the video below, I show you how to make it and give a couple of tips about the sequins, too.
Of course, you're looking the the star of this card - that sweetie pie giraffe! I had such fun watercoloring it and you can see the process in the video. I'm a newbie at watercolor, so learn along with me!
Hope you enjoy the video:
