I loved, loved, loved the Mojo Monday sketch this week! I knew the second I saw it what I wanted to do. I have a friend who is pregnant with her 3rd baby right now (#1 and #2 are boys) and she is kind of hoping this one is a girl. She's almost far enough along for "the ultrasound" and I am hoping to give her this card if she gets happy girl news. I got a new stamp set from The Angel Company called Wild For You. I knew that the giraffe would be so fun to use for this card. I did have to make the card a 5x5 to try and fit my sentiment on the way I wanted. I found this designer paper a long time ago at a local scrapbook store when they were "going out of business." I bought every sheet they had. If ever a girl has fallen in love with designer paper, it was me when I saw this paper. I loved the different shades of pink and brown and the swirly circles. I loved everything about it. Another company ended up buying this scrapbook store and they stayed open as a scrapbook store. So when I go in I always check to see if they have this paper and if they do I buy some more. I just love it! And the big circle really is a deep brown that matches the card. It's not black...I promise!
Edited to add: the paper is Peachy Keen Dazzling Dish. If you find some, buy it. You won't regret it!!!
