Up, Up and Away

I decided to play again in the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge, "Fly Away With Me."  We are to focus on birds, and my card does include birds in the trees, but the focus is on a giraffe in a balloon:


Talk about a quick card to make!  All of this is patterned paper from Stampin' Up! (retired, of course; I seem to have so much of that).  I just cut out the giraffe in a balloon image, popped him up on foam dimensionals, and added some pearls.


A little sentiment from Verve and I was done!


How satisfying to make something so cute in so little time!

Challenge entered:  Simon Says Stamp - 'Love is in the Air'

Hope you have a wonderful day!

That is SO adorable, Colleen! Can't believe that you put this together mostly with patterned paper. I really need to think about doing that kind of thing more often. Love the colors and your super fussy cutting. Your pearl additions are so pretty!!

This has just inspired me. I know you don't know what I have going on right now-but I have ha d a mental block on this embossing folder I have to use. To tell you the truth it is Steampunk and I could really "PUNK" it out....lol But I can't because I am limited to only certain products which has stifled me... but this gave me a superb idea. I love how carefree and fun this is. A beautiful creation.
