Long Neck Love

Happy Tuesday!
It's the start of a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is One Layer Cards!  I love simple cards, but one layer can be quite the challenge...I sort of cheated on mine...
The whole front of the card with the images and sentiment is all one layer!  But I did mat everything onto red card stock and I added the little heart die cuts...
But I love this adorable image from MyGrafico!  Those giraffes are so cute!  I printed them onto kraft card stock and then colored them in with my ShinHan markers.  That was interesting...I wasn't sure how the colors would show up on the colored paper, but they worked out well.

I filled in some ground under them, and then stamped out the sentiment above them.  The final touch was some white stitching around the outside to tie everything together!

We'd love to have you join us!!  Give this fun challenge a shot!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
