Hi all! Well its that time of day again and boy-o-boy did I have fun playing with this sketch!
I decided that I really wanted this card to be boyish and what better stamp set to use but one of my new favourites SU " Animal Crackers". 
I am a big fan of polka dots and love this new DSP paper from the Urban Oasis pack, and because I love it so much I centred the colours for the card around this paper.
You can't really tell by this photo but I cut some Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon and frayed the edges creating a mane for the cute little Giraffe, also I paper tolled out the Giraffe, and the star in his mouth for added dimension.
If you know me well you would know that I am shocking at cutting out with any kind of craft knife, so I kind of cheated with the top of this tag by using my Scallop square punch, by lining up the corners like you would with the corner round punch.

Oh my gosh, the frayed mane is such a clever detail!!!! Absolutely love it, Amy!

I really like those papers, too. I never got around to buying them before they retired, but I do enjoy seeing what people create with them. The inverted scallop corners are a nice touch, too!

Have a great weekend!

HI Amy,

lovely card, the frayed mane is a great idea and I love the button/star details. Great combo of stripes and spots too :)

What a cutie - was wondering how you did the mane, TFS - it adds a fabulous element and softness! ALMOST makes me wish I had a littlie again - almost - LOL
