The theme at As You See It is Zoology. They are asking us to fill in the blank with our favorite animal. My favorite animal is the Giraffe – it stands tall and proud, head and shoulders above the rest and is not afraid to stick its neck out. My Giraffe is from Wild About You a retired set by Theresa Momber for Gina K Designs. I colored with Copics, stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate and die cut with a deckle edge die and mounted on a mat of Dark Chocolate. I stenciled the Palm Frond by Honeybee Stamps in Fresh Asparagus for a jungle like background. Always good to add another masculine card to my stash. I’m also entering this in the challenge at Sweet Stampin’ to feature an animal.

All your layers are fantastic, as is your layout and coloring. Deckle was a nice touch for a little more wild.
Thanks Bonnie. The deckle just jumped out at me from its package – I’d never used it and thought it would work.
Love your giraffe with the background you created. Perfect wild card.
Thanks Lisa. it came together much quicker and easier than I thought it would.
Love the jungle theme for your masculine and animal theme. That deckled edge die is perfect for your beautifully colored giraffe.
Thanks Gayle. I didn’t have any background paper so had to make my own with the stencil.
Perfect jungle theme card Judy. Love that giraffe and deckle edge frame. I think giraffes are just the most amazing animal.
This is just perfect for the challenge and i love all the layers you created. The deckle edge is great for the image piece and I think the stenciling makes everything else pop.
Thanks Johanna. The stencil was kind of a last minute idea, but I was pleased how well it worked.
Your giraffe is fabulous Gayle and I love the stencilled leafy background which frames it perfectly. Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It this week!
What a great card Judy! I love that set. Your background is perfect for it.
Thanks Golda. It’s one of my favorite sets and I don’t use it often enough.
This is awesome! I love your background Judy! And the colouring on your giraffe! I had to chuckle at your comment about how they are willing to stick their necks out! Thanks for filling in the blank with us at As You See It Challenges.
It was a fun challenge
Fabulous! Love your giraffe, the layout, colours and that great background. Thanks for playing with us at As You See It Challenge.
This is a great image (my friend LOVES giraffes, too) and the background you created for it is perfect! Love it! Great job on our As You See It challenge this week!
