I'm in love - with a giraffe!

Seriously, how cute is this little face?!




It's for an order, for a mum who loves giraffes... I think I love them too now!  Do you ever make cards you don't really want to give away?  I'd quite like to keep this!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
A Day for Daisies - anything goes
Come & Get It - use 3 of something (flowers)
Sentimental Sundays - easel cards
Pile it On - shiny (enamel dots)

Thanks for popping in... hope you have a lovely evening :o)
