UDI Inspiration Challenge #62

Ok - this was supposed to posted on Thursday, but I've been having more computer/internet problems. I think I've got most of the issues fixed - still something going on with my laptop, but that is minor. Sorry this is late!

The inspiration came from the picture below. I decided to go with the earthy color scheme and the 'polka dots' on the giraffe. Be sure to check out what the other girls came up with over at the UDI Blog.

Things to Note:
-- the trees were stamped in So Saffron, then 'rolled' in Soft Suede
-- the 'grass' is actually one of the tree top stamps in the set
-- the base card is Whisper White and sponged with Soft Suede

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the Designer Paper is from the Tall Tales DSP. It is So Saffron polka dotted and is punched on the one side with the Scallop Punch. I made this for my niece who recently had surgery. She's still recovering, but hopefully will soon be up and about!

Stamps: Trendy Trees
CS: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Tall Tales DSP
Ink: So Saffron, Soft Suede, Old Olive
Other: Scallop Edge Punch, Soft Suede Polka Dotted Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamping Sponge

Sorry for the short post tonight!

Stampin' Hugs,
