Muse #266 + Poppystamps Challenge #44 + Seize the Birthday

I've had the Poppystamps Challenge #44: Patterned Paper Please in the back of my mind all month and when I saw Tracey's sweet card for Muse #266 started working with the idea of making a patterned paper elephant.


I didn't get far with my elephant, so turned to another African animal and found greater success with my Poppystamps Giraffe Trio. The gray from the elephant inspired my card base, the square block from Tracey's design became a square cutout and I used a similar "wishing you" sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

The giraffes are adhered to the card base with glue dots for a bit of lift and the top panel adhered with foam tape.

I am also linking this card to Seize the Birthday in their Anything Goes category.

Thanks for stopping by,
