Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge - Anything Goes!

Hello there it is time for another challenge at Digi Doodle Shops Best Challenge. We have a fantastic theme of "Anything Goes". I love these sorts of themes as it means you can go wild with your creativity.

I visited my friend who has just had her first baby last weekend and this is the card I made for her baby using Judy's gorgeous giraffe image available in the Digi Doodle Shop.

To make the card I made an 8" by 8" card from some A3 cardstock. I then created a box frame using my Simply Silhouettes CD rom by My Craft Studio. The template is on  the CD rom I changed the colour of the template slightly. I then coloured in the gorgeous giraffe with my prisma pencils and sprayed him with a varnish from Crafters Companions.

I embossed some cardstock with a cuttlebug folder and I added some ribbon detail and a pram charm. I then made a customised saying with my xyron design runner and added some more embellishments from Craftworks cards.

I am off to finish my chores as I have friends over for lunch. I have put a close up of the image below. I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Thanks for stopping by Hugs Pascale.
