Happy 1st Birthday

Well took a couple of days away from the craft room to go to Colac to pick up our little pouch (he stayed with Neils' parents while we were in NZ) and he was absolutely estatic to see us and I must admit I was estatic to see him :)
This afternoon I made this card for my sister who requested a 1st birthday card - not too sure when she wanted it by (I have to send it back to NZ) and I hope it gets there in time.

and a close up ...
I must admit that I loved making this card - normally I don't make 'baby' type cards but I remember the last one I made I ended up liking it. 
I followed the sketch from Mojo Mondays, and drew inspiration from this months challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook blog.

I am also entering it for this weeks challenge over at Pixie Dust Studio - use 2 or more images - and I have used 2 giraffes.
materials - Core 'Dinations kiwi cardstock, Bazzill red slipper, apricot, pistachio cardstock; Jillibean Soup 'apple cheddar soup' papers; Verve 'to the moon' stamps, MFT 'mini banner day alpha and die set', AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; StazOn timber brown ink; Marvy pens - orche 13, dark brown 18 and blender 0; Sizzix oval tags die; American Crafts thickers; Ranger 'buttercup' liquid pearls; Kaisercraft bling.
Thanks for looking.
