Giraffe Birthday Wishes - colourQ challenge #346

Wow ... I'm motoring gliding along with cards, aren't I?

May as well strike while the mojo "iron" is hot! :-) (did you see that segue coming? LOL)

This week's colourQ challenge was a great opportunity for me to add some boy birthday cards to my collection:

Great colours, aren't they? So many ways to go with this ... and so much inspiration to check out on the challenge blog. Here's mine:

I guess I'm on an Avery Elle kick lately as this giraffe balloon image is from one of their sets, and I've paired it with the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment again. I guess you can say, "a match made in card heaven".

Hmmm ... I better quit while I'm ahead. I seem to be in a cliche kinda mood today. Happy Sunday!

Stamps: Avery Elle Balloon Giraffe; Simon Says Stamp Birthday Messages
Inks: See Above
Dies: MFT Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame Die-namics; Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set
Accessories: Dimensional foam dots
