artful INKables challenge and a prize. Don't miss it.

Happy Wednesday Morning to everyone. I have been working my long stretch and I am now in my stamping room. OK here is my card for today's challenge. I hope you like it. I masked the giraffe so that I could stamp the flowers in the background. It kinda looks 3-D like the giraffe is sticking out a bit. My doodling is a minimum I just don't have a steady hand to do that. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Here is what I used:
Stamps: artful INKables: Zany Zoo 1, Paradise Island, Basic Salutatuions
Paper: SU: Whisper white and Basicgrey: two scoops
Ink: SU: close to cocoa, and Versafine: Onyx Black
Accessories: rhinestones from me and my big ideas, prismacolor pincils, punches, ribbon from micheals's stores, stickles, pop dots.

Welcome to another Artuful Inkables Design Team Challenge! Kristin was the hostess this week and her instructions were to make a card 1) using the masking technique and 2) to do some doodling on your card.
