Birthday Giraffe

Today I have a card for the Freshly Made Sketches and Paper Players (A Day at the Zoo) challenges.  I actually made two - one is more CAS and the other is a little jazzed up for a 1st birthday.  
Jacquie said this sketch was inspired by a neglected diamond die that she stumbled across.  Turns out I have a whole set of nesting diamond dies that I had completely forgotten about so thanks for the reminder, Jacquie!
The Avery Elle giraffe is one of my faves.  He's long been retired but I find myself reaching for him often.  I also love my Lil' Inker balloon die set.  There are a few different shapes, sizes and designs and they've gotten lots of use over the years.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Night of Navy) Stampin; Up
Stamps:  (Giraffe from What's UP?) Avery Elle, (Hat from Hats Off To You, Sentiment from So Much To Say) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko,
Dies:  (Diamond) Lifestyle Crafts, (Flags) My Favourite Things, (Balloon) Lil' Inker Designs, (1) Papertrey Ink
Markers:  (R17, Y06, R02, E33, E35, E51) Copic

Too funny you have the same "lost" diamond dies, Jen! Love your giraffe peeking through and the fun, bright colors! It's always a treat to see your cards in the FMS gallery!
