Party Giraffe

Today I would like to share this tri-fold shutter card that I made for my BFF. Her birthday is still a month away but I just had this idea in my head and had to get it done before it fled away. She loves giraffes hence the giraffe theme. The party giraffe is a digi from Crafty Journal, and the paper is from Animal Crackers DCWV Stack. I just love how sparkly it is (unfortunately I was not able to get a good picture of all that sparkle).
 Here is a close up of Party Ickle. I used my Copic to color this image and added Stickles to the gift bow, hat, tu-tu and bow.

Colors used:
Body:E31,51 Spots:E25,15 Blush:R20 Tutu:R37,35,32 Party Hat:BG18.15,11Gift Bow:YR07,04,01 Gift Box: B06,04,02 Shadows:C3,2,0 and Colorless Blender.

You can see a great video tutorial for the tri-fold shutter card here.  My measurement are a little bit different but you can get the idea and and many other great tips at the video mentioned above.
