Hi everyone! It's Becca and I'm here to share this cute little card with you that I made using the Create a Critter cartridge.  I just LOVE this cart!  This "Wild" card can be used for any occasion.  Hence, the "wild card".  I used it as a birthday card for my father-in-law and he loved it. The solid card stock is from Bo Bunny. One of my favorites for sure.  The patterned paper's from Basic Grey. The measurements are as follows:


Giraffe - 5"
"Wild" - 1 3/4"
Leaf -3"
Flower - 1"
Cloud - 3/4"
Dark Green Mat - 5 x 6 1/2"
Patterned Mat - 4 1/2" x 6"

This cute little giraffe is gonna need a bow.  Isn't he cute?  He wears it well!


To complete this card you'll need basic tools and adhesives, the cartridge listed above, brown brad, brown chalk ink, and green ribbon.  Have fun creating! 

Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment so you can be entered to win our yummy blog candy.  Monique will draw the lucky winner who will receive Echo Park's Country Drive paper pack.  Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see more fun stuff and enter again.  Fun fun!

That giraffe is cute on his own, but when you add the bow, his cuteness factor is tripled. Adorable!
