Make a Scene!

I suppose you can take that two ways! But the kind I mean is the kind Michelle is so fabulous at making. AKA JustPaintingAround at SCS, Michelle was chosen as today's Featured Stamper! Check out her gallery, as she has a really cool style!

I chose this fun card of Michelle's to case. Mine is a bit different, but I do like how it turned out.
(With a giraffe, how could I not? LOL)


I changed a few of the images, the layout a bit, added giraffe twill trim at the top. The tree I had on my desk already from Friday, and it looks similar to the acacia trees that giraffes love. The wind is picking up in the Savannah, as I tried to show with a double sponged edge below the tree.

Thanks for coming to look!

Wonderful twill. I really like the spotlight sort of effect on the tree, and the sand blown by the wind.
Loved the Friday challenge, the gallery looked so amazing all in black and white. Thank you :D.
