Groovy Giraffe

My MIL asked me if I would make a quick (but cute) baby card for her. Since I live with the woman I couldn't say no :) j/k she actually was going to buy one of the VERY first baby girl cards I had made, this was before stamping, cricut, etc. So of course I said "NO, NO I will make you a "fresh" one." I really am on the fence with this card, I "like" it but at the same time I really don't. I wasn't even going to post it but I figured someone out there might find inspiration from it-that's what I'm telling myself so...I used my nestablitlies to make a 4x3.75 Kraft scalloped base square card. I then layered a 3.5x 3.5 square of groovy guava DSP. I then cut a 1.25x3.25 strip of certainly celery. I inked up the swirls and stars stamp with certainly celery craft ink. After stamping it onto my cc strip I added clear embossing powder (then heated it up). The main image is clear embossed too, and then water colored.

Lovely card. I like it.
To step it up a notch you could paper pierce around the inner square to add another border, or doodle one. You could also add a sentiment circle on the bottom right.

I really like it! I'm usually not a big fan of craft but it looks GREAT with those colors.
