Happy Birthday to my nephew! Viva la Verve March Week 2 (VLVMar2011)

Today I'm sharing my entry for the Viva la Verve March - Week 2 challenge. I made this card for my nephew's 4th birthday party tomorrow!


I used Verve's To the Moon for that sweet little giraffe. I love how he looks, peeking out of that cute little frame (made with Nesties - Labels 12 and Squares), but instead of stamping the frame image, this time I stamped some of the little star trio image from the set.

I also used Papertrey Ink Impression Plates (Tin Types on the card base and By the Numbers on the orange strip), the banner die, and the sentiment from Make a Wish. I used twine from The Twinery and tied it all up with a PTI button a-la Jackie Pedro style! Jackie does this a lot and I always love it! 


Thanks for looking! And here is the original sketch, so fun!

Very cute! Ijust got this stamp set from Verve and can't wait to use it. We've had a little baby boom at work so I will definitely be using it soon! You did an awesome job and I'm sure your little nephew is going to love that little giraffe!

I LOVE that giraffe! The orange looks fabulous paired with the bright blue. Perfect for any little boy. Cards like these are sure to make you the favorite auntie.

EEEEK! Orange and blue are the best together and that adorable giraffe has stolen my heart Debbie. Your twine skills make me think of how a big top circus tent is tied down...LOVE.
