Giraffe Anniversary Card

Okay here is my second card  for the "Parade Your Pets" contest. This was a little more time consuming card but I love love love how it turned out. This card used the Giraffe from Animal Stories stamp set 116716 $15.95 and Teeny Tiny Wishes 115370 $36.95 for the Happy Anniversary and then for the Wanna Neck? was my personal stamp using Basic One Line Text Stamp 1155596 $13.95. I used Soft Suede,So Saffron and Naturals Ivory CS.I did the bubble wrap technique using the Brayer 103295 $12.50. This is where you ink up your brayer and then brayer the color onto the bubble wrap and lay your CS on top of the bubble wrap with a scrap sheet of paper to rub over your CS to transfer the ink. I then textured the CS with Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 117335 $7.95. Then I embossed the Giraffe with Soft Suede Craft Ink Stamping Spot 119719 $21.95 for the 10 spots and Clear Embossing Powder 109130 $4.75. I tore all the edges with the Tearing Edge102930 $19.95 and sponged the edges with a Sponge  101610 $3.50 and tied around the Linen Thread 104199 $4.50. I stamped the Happy Anniversary and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch 119849 $16.95 then added 2 Subtles Brads 119738 $6.95.
I hope you have a blessed day and I really hope this card wins the Parade Your Pets Contest but I will let you all know!  Happy Trails and till I post again!
