Today we were to find something in our home that inspires us and to create a card using that piece for inspiration. I chose this giraffe music box for my inspiration piece. I collect giraffes and it is one of the first things I bought for my collection after I was married. I remember thinking at the time that is was sooo expensive and frivolous. It has survived many moves and a lot of years! It plays "Born Free" (which makes me think of lions, rather than giraffes.....not a good thing for a giraffe collector lol!).
My giraffe stamp is one of my favorites. My sister gave it to me. I love the design. The giraffe DP is some I have had for awhile and never found the right time to use it. I love the border along the bottom. It is by Hot Off the Press.
What a great challenge! I have two or three other things I may have to use today as well! And thanks for coming to take a look~
