Divalicious Sketch Challenge #1

Hello again. Tonight I have a card to share with you which came together really quickly, yeah!!!. It's for the new Delicious Diva Challenge Blog. The blog has been created by 2 talented crafters Kellie and Kristy. Kristy has designed the first sketch for the first challenge and here it is.....
I have a couple of friends pregnant at the moment and although I have a few girl cards ready to go, I have no boy cards and since my gorgeous friend Mel lent me some of her stamp sets to play with, I took advantage of the Wild About You set and made this card.
So basically the card uses a base of Old Olive and has 2 strips of DSP from Summer Picnic. The giraffe is stamped in Mellow Moss on Whisper White and layered on Old Olive which has been paper pierced and faux stitched using a white gel pen. The sentiment say 'welcome baby' from Short and Sweet (sorry girls, I couldn't fit it down the bottom as per sketch) and is in Bashful Blue. You may need to double click on the photo for a better look, but there is 2 rounds of Hemp Twine around the middle as well as some used for the bow on the old olive coloured square button and finally 3 white brads. I'm really happy with this card and it looks really cute in real life. Thanks for looking.
Before I go, one of the guest designers for the Delicious Diva's this month, Rowena, has 5 Sugarnellie Stamps to give away. For your chance to win click here.
