My Pink Stamper Design Team 2011 Challenge

My Pink Stamper is having a design team 2011 challenge!!

I've decided this is the wake-up call I need.  I've been in a slump and I'm treating this challenge as a kick in the 'you know where' to get me started again (thanks, Robyn)!

The challenge is to create a card, layout or other project using your favorite cricut cartridge AND Robyn's favorite colors - pink, green and brown.

Here's my 5x7 card. (sorry the quality isn't great....the lighting this time of night isn't so good - I'll see about posting a better pic in the morning)

Here's what I used:
5x7 white card (unknown brand)
Cricut New Arrival Cartridge (all-time fav of mine!)  The giraffe was cut at 4".  The "baby" blocks cut at 1".
Bazzill cardstock (green, white)  both strips were cut at 1" x 7"
KI Memories striped paper 5x7 to cover card front
Reminisce 100% Girl paper (dotted paper) 1/2" x 7"
Kaiser Craft pink pearls - placed on each of the letters
Martha Stewart Lace punch - punched both green/white cardstock above
VersaColor Evergreen ink -inked edges of "baby" squares
The "grass" was hand drawn and cut.  I'm sure it's on one of my carts but for the life of me couldn't find it.  If anyone knows, can you please jog my memory?  Thanks.

Hope you like it.  It was loads of fun to do!
