Happy BDay

I recently bought a pack of kraft cardstock and had been playing with the paper. To my surprise, the neutral color of the kraft cards made great backgrounds, and they were so easy to color using colored pencils or markers. 

I got inspirations from Just Add Ink Challenge #329. The challenge was a photo inspiration with pretty colorful tulips. I used the colors from the photo to color the giraffe: purple, pink, yellow, white, green. Hope you like the cute giraffe.

I'll also play along the Card Concept #57 The Rainbow Connection. The challenge this month was a photo inspiration with colorful flowerpots. I love all the colors from the photo. It has made the end of summer so happy and cheerful! I used clean and simple style to make this card.

Challenges I would like to play along:
