Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 68~~Distressed

This week Carol challenged us at Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge to distress our card in some way, so I distressed the corn husk and black CS with a distressing tool.  It's kind of hard to see in the photo, but IRL it is distressed.  I used some MS glitter to make the mane on the giraffe and I like the sparkle. 

Please join us this week at Speedy the Cat's challenge.  You could win the stamp set "Welcome Home". 

Stamps:  African Veldt
Ink:  soft suede, always artichoke
Paper:  Corn Husk, always artichoke, black
Misc:  MS border punch, MS glitter, distressing tool

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Stamping!

Patty & Winnie

That giraffe with glitter is just too cute. Reminds me of a song the kids used to have on a disney tape...the Giraffe is laughing, yes indeed, he's laughing. ha ha ha ha ha...they loved it.

I love that giraffe head and the glitter you added. Pretty punch...I always notice the punches as I love them. Running out of room for many more...guess they'll be all over the house. LOL
Great card!!!

What a handsome guy, that giraffe with his sparkly mane! I love giraffes, especially since I'd watch Baby Einstein videos about wild animals with my girls when they were babies.
