Happy Me Me Me Day!

Good morning, it's my turn to host the challenge at Fab'n' Funky this week -I chose the theme of 'more than one fold'.This is the birthday card I made for one of my lovely sisters- she is obsessed with giraffes! She also has no hesitation in telling people she loves presents! This image from Sasayaki Glitter was just made for her! 
I made a side step card base from black cardstock, printed the image, coloured with copics and adhered to the main panel. I printed the image again, much larger this time, coloured and fussy cut the three giraffes and arranged them on the 'steps' along with a couple of die cut parcels. I finished with the stamped sentiment (very appropriate :) and some bling. She really loved it!

Please hop over to Fab'n' Funky to check out the beautiful creations my team have made- I'd love it if you choose to play along this week.

What a cracker. A fabulous idea to use black card and the super bright and beautiful images really stand out.
Love the fussy cutting of the images on my right. I had a `happy me day' today, not. Dentist, hygienist, a new one, gosh she must have been a torturer in a previous life, never spit out so much blood before in my life.

Oh Chris, I absolutely love this card!!! Your coloring is fabulous and the images are so cute and quirky you couldn't not smile opening this card. And I love that its so tailor made to your sister's likes and personality too! The sentiment is the icing on the cake!!! I have not made it clear enough to my family and friends how much I like presents, but I *do* remind them *constantly* when my birthday is coming. LOL! Thanks for sharing this adorable critter card at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!!!
