Beate's Weekend Sketch, with a twist!!

I am in heaven today!! I am going to stamp all day, if it kills me!!! I have so many challenges that I want to catch up on, and I am determined to get them all done!! Wishful thinking, I know, but I am going to try. This card is a twofer.(two for the price of one!!) It is for Beates weekend sketch challenge and also for Melanie Muenchinger's Just So Hippy challenge. I love this set she designed!!! I started with a black base that measures 9x4. I then used Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and then some of the yummy Berry Bliss paper from SU. I then punched out a 1/2"and 1/4" circles and put a white brad through them. They are up on pop dots. I then matted a smaller piece of Rose Red with some of the Rose Red DSP. I punched my scallops out of Pretty in Pink, then 13/8 circle in black and 1 1/4" in white. I had already stamped the giraffes and colored them before I punched them out. I don't know why, but I can hardly use the scallop punch without either wanting to punch holes in it, or draw on it with my gel pen!! I punched the sentiment out with my word window punch, but it was too long, so I did it seperately, and I attached it with a black brad. The ribbon I used is from the retired Flirty Ribbon Originals. Well, I guess that is all for this one!! I will be back when the next card is done!!!
