Do you feel the love with all the texture and no red? Each month a Dirty Girl challenge is assigned for all the current DD and DDA. This month's hostess is Jodi(Kharmagirl). She challenged us to make a Valentine's card with texture of any kind, but NO red!!!!
I chose to use some solid colored Basic Gray cardstock and ran it through the cuttlebug using two different embossing folders. I also used a MS border punch to add some more texture and break up the grass and sky in a different way. I am using Our Craft LoungeTree-Mendous Love stamp set. This is the cutest girafe and the tree is just fun to color.
My dd actually colored the giraffe for me after we had a discussion that a giraffe is not brown, but more cream or golden. She won and I took my brown giraffe off the card and put hers up there. I admit....hers does look better. What a fun giraffe moment!!!!
