Grateful Giraffe


CAS-ual Fridays is celebrating National Pink Day this week which is perfect as my friend wants some thank you cards for her pediatrician and the nurses in the maternity ward at the hospital.  She has been to Kenya several times and loves anything with giraffes and elephants so the PTI Sweet Baby dies are coming in handy.  I made a few different cards for her but this one is my favourite as I love those pink polka dots!   


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Quite Contrary collection) My Mind's Eye
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Chit Chat) Paper Smooches
Ink: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Die:  (Sweet Baby) PTI
Gems:  (Beetle Black assortment) Doodlebug
