This is my card for Jeanne's Ship Shape challenge - shaped cards, anything other than squares, rectangles or circles.
I like the Blossoms dies for card bases, but they make quite small ones, so after that Labels 10 is my go-to, because with a quick snip across the bottom of the back it stands up perfectly. I had out a different stamp set and then thought it would be good to have a few masculine cards in the mix. I remember we had a masculine challenge last year. So I put away my humming bird and pulled out In the Wild. Giraffe stamped with Versafine Sepia and coloured with a yellow pencil. After masking him I stamped the various bits of foliage (Kittie Kits) while it was still in the die, and then sponged with Tea Dye, Forest Moss, China Blue, Mustard Seed. Base is white card with an over-layer of yellow Bazzill with black stitching lines. I also added a Woodware sentiment.

Sabrina, this is such a wonderful card. The scene is gorgeous! And I love the faux stitching - it adds so much but I never think to use it on my cards :( I may need to invest in some Kittie Kits, too, they are perfect on this card!
