I needed to make a baby boy card, so I inked up this adorable giraffe from Zoo-Pendous in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copics.  I also used the banner from World's Best along with the coordinating World's Best Die - it's stamped in Memento Desert Sand.  The patterned papers are Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks 6x6 from My Mind's Eye.

I hope you'll join in this week with our animal theme - should be all sorts of fun!

Here is a peek at the die and Copics I used today:
