All About Family in the Jungle

For this card I used a sketch challenge from Limelight Papercraft with a focus on tags.
I started with a digi image from Create with TLC that was a freebie from Paulette. I am using the giraffes to tie in with a challenge from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I colored the image with Copics...what a job with all those spots....and sponged the background with blue and green. Found some pattern paper in stash that reminded me of Africa .. cut a strip for the edge with decorative scissors with a crocodile pattern...appropriate for the jungle theme. Assembled card on solid CS for base and added a ribbon that I thought was perfect for the colors....kept it simple with the lines of the card.  Punched tag out of the pattern paper and added a rub on sentiment. Tied on with twine.
