Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #11 AND Baby Card Shower!

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to my Heart Song Inspiration Challenge blog post for this week!
This week we challenge you to "Use an Animal Image and/or Pleated Ribbon or Paper." What a fun challenge!
You don't have to use a Heart Song image - but we would of course love you to! There is even a fabulous Freebie for you to try... So why not join in? You could win an image of your choice from the Heart Song store!

I was so excited to do my card this week! We Heart Song Design gals decided to surprise Leah with a BABY CARD SHOWER! So when she returns from Ethiopia with Makaio she will hopefully see a mass of cute baby love! Isn't that awesome??

So here is my card for Leah and her family to Welcome little Makaio!

Here is a view showing the layering...

I used the sweet Heart Song Giraffe, double layered for extra-dimensional cuteness, framed with deckled Nesties and mounted over my pleated ribbon feature. So I managed to cover Animals, Pleating AND a Baby Card!! ;)

Thanks for visiting and hope you can play along!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges;
Here Come the Boys Challenge #8 - Critters
