Papertrey Ink's Make-it-Monday Challenge #78

Hey there!

I have been having so much fun playing with Bella Blvd's baby girl collection that when I saw this week's Make-it-Monday video by Heather challenging us to incorporate hand stitching around Papertrey ink stamps I just had to join in.  There is this pink giraffe print paper in the collection that I thought would go so well with this darling giraffe found in Papertrey Ink's Sweet Baby set. 

I decided to go with Pink and Brown for my color scheme (the brown polka dot print is from Bella Blvd's Finally Fall collection).  Years ago Gymboree had a pink and brown giraffe line that I loved so I took my inspiration from them.  I love the way the stitching around the giraffe gives it the look of applique like you would find on one of their cute shirts.  I completely lucked out finding the brown ribbon with the pink stitches in my craft supply--And to have the pinks and browns actually match perfectly... Let's just say it was my lucky day.

Additional Supplies:
Cardstock- Bazzill Basics
Button- Doodlebug
Colorbox Doodlebug Cupcake Pigment Ink
We R Memory Keeper Corner Chomper
