Wild About You!!!!

A little card made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

This morning I was sorting paper and these two colours happened to be laying on top of each other. I thought that they would make a very cool colour combination and it got me thinking "Tropical"!

The background for this card was made with the Bodacious Bouquet Stamp set by stamping tone on tone. The main image comes from the Wild about you set. To reverse the Giraffe on the left, I stamped the image onto the paisley background stamp and then stamped onto the paper. Stamped the other Giraffe the regular way!!!

Adding some Black CS to make the colours pop I then brought the black back in with a band to suspend the tiny prima flowers. I used copper brads in the middle to recreate the "rusty" look.

The sentiment comes from the small sayings set, which was in the winter catalogue. I am really hoping that it becomes part of the new collection, because I use it constantly. Doodles and the outline on the Giraffes were created with a black Stampin' Write Marker.
