Simon Says...............Anything Goes !!!


Welcome to the new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the theme this week is....


We are showcasing AVERY ELLE PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
As we are showcasing AVERY ELLE PRODUCTS - I had not doubt which of their product to use. Some time ago I was lucky to visit Kenya's Giraffe Senctuary - I fell in love with the adorable Giraffles so I obviously chose the What's Up image. 

The card just designed itself - I wish I could locate the photograph of a little Giraffe towering above above me against the blue sky, sun shining down and among the trees.
I started stamping the image on cardstock but decided to cut  him out and add Scotch Foam tape to add more definition. I used Memory Box Leafy Branch  cut out several times in three different shades of DoCrafts Capsule Paper Stack in green, cut them up and used Aleene's Original Tacky Glue to apply.
I did start with a square card but which having used a tall thin image a tall card would make a better balence.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
