No Pink!!!

This is another card for Kerry at work to take back to South Africa.
It's her niece's 1st birthday and the brief was to make a card following one that she had bought which was like a first year book with blanks to fill in.
The purchased one was too cutesy which she didn't like and had pink on it -
the directions were "NO PINK!!"

Here is the result:

I used an 8x8" DCWV pad called Nanna's Nursery - Baby Boy which I got from Cardinal Colours.

The front page was one from the paper pad.
I cut out the giraffe and flowers from the 2nd page and mounted with 3d foam pads.
Pearls were added to the flower centres.
The words were cut with my Cricut Zooballoo cartridge also from Cardinal Colours.

The first centre spread.
The card is made using 2 8x8" CWC white cards stuck together to form a pocket in the centre where I placed a tag.
The elements were also cut with the Zooballoo Cartridge.

A close up of the Monkeys....

And the Lions....

This is the centre tag, tied with some cords.

The 2nd page spread ready for a photograph and with a verse.

Hope she like's it.
