A Pink Giraffe

Hi, I was a little behind but I think I am caught now!  WHEW!  This cute image on this card is from our sponsor  Digis With Attitude this week at Crafty Creations .  Our hostess Juelmarie had challenged us with the images to bring our our inner animal.  As soon as I saw this adorable feisty giraffe I knew I wanted her to be pink.
This card also follows a sketch this week on the Cricut message board.
 The frame around the giraffe and where the saying is is from the Fancy Frame cartridge.  The saying is computer generated and printed on pearl white linen paper.  As soon as it came out of the printer I immediately sprinkled it with Crystal embossing powder.  Printing on this type of paper does not dry instantly so you have a small window of time to hit it with some embossing powder.  The background pink giraffe paper is from the DCWV Safari stack.
I think you can read it a little better here.  I added some pearls at the edge of the oval.  I colored Gina Giraffe (as she is called at Digis with Attitude) using my Copic markers.  Now I have a problem that I hoping you can help me out with, what should the inside say?  I was quite pleased when I came up with the front saying as I was trying to show the attitude of Gina, but now what do I put inside?  Any ideas?

Be sure and head on over to Crafty Creations and join in our challenge, you could win some of these images.

Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to read them, besides that way I knew you were here to take a peak.
