Sunshine

Here's a card for the Verve Challenge, week four. I opted for room two this week.
The sketch and a pic of the inspiration I chose. Can you see the giraffe on the wall?



I turned the sketch on its side so I could fit this adorable giraffe, that has no name! the image is in my folder with no name. I do not recall who created this adorable image. If any one out there knows, please share that info with me so I can give the credit to the rightful owner.


The sentiment is from Verve's 'Feel the Sun', the one of two sets that I own! It says, "Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine', by Anthony J. D'Angelo.
I inked only the one side of the embossing with Old Paper using the direct to paper technique.
Now that I look at this on the computer screen it could use a brad or two or three, but at the time I was finished it just looked good without any embellishments.
For now the giraffe's name is Sunshine and until the rightful owner claims him!!!! They should make giraffes wear a collar and name tag, don't you think?
Thanks for coming by!
