Mr. Giraffe

Good Morning! It is time for another Kaboodle Doodles challenge. This week we have a color challenge for you, inspired by a beautiful floral picture taken by our own Chris. Our challenge is sponsored by Meljen’s Designs, which are sold exclusively at Whimsy Stamps. There are some fantastic designs in her collection.

First up, here is our photo inspiration and color pallet.

Second, is my card using this adorable giraffe image.

I have to admit that I struggled with this color combo. I kept getting results I wasn’t satisfied with and then I tried this little cutie. I was finally happy with the coloring and then paired it up with Pure Poppy and Lavender Lace — definitely a new combo for me. The layout is very simple — the Lavender Lace is embossed with Polka Dots and a knotted piece of Pure Poppy grosgrain pops off the purple. My daughter asked why he was wearing a tie and I told her it was because he worked at the zoo. She loved that answer!
