Retro Giraffe

RS

Gave this week's Retro Sketch a go and not overly pleased with the results.  Not sure if it's the lack of white space that's throwing me off or what, but posting it anyway.  Sometimes you just gotta go with the good, the bad and the ugly ;)

I never tire of this cute giraffe from Stampin' Up's Wild About You set.  I don't think I will ever part with it as it always makes me smile :)  The DP is from retired paper I won on Christine's blog so it is very close to a Stampin' Up only card.

Thanks for popping by today.  I'm going to enjoy the sunshine while it lasts as the rain is a comin'....no!!!!

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Wild About You and Shot and Sweet (Stampin' Up)
Paper: Kraft, So Saffron and Stampin' Up DSP
Ink:  Close to Cocoa, Black
Accessories:  Corner Rounder, Twine, Button, Black Half Pearls, Dimensionals

I love this, the yellow and green together remind me of the 70's so I think you got the retro thing down!
