Dressed up Giraffe

I have absolutely no male any occasion cards so I thought I would add one to my collection today.  I found this Meljen image and when searching for "dressed up giraffe sentiment", I guess I really thought I'd get something (uh yeah) so I just went with "All Dressed Up" and think this would be a really cute card for a man/teen who is about to go on a job interview.

Quite honestly, I was a bit intimidated at first by Come and Get It Challenges color selection, but I really like how they worked together so I'm glad I was inspired to do something different.

What I used on this card:

Digi: Meljen's Designs - Giraffe's Necktie
Paper: (for my sentiment) DigitalPaperCrafts "Little Helper" pattern; MME Jack & Jill; Hammermill
EK Success border punch
Studio G Glitter Glue
Image colored with Spectrum Noir and Prismacolor Markers
Sketch: 4 Crafty Chicks
