Happy 1st Bday- Using my fav stamp set!

I finally have an occasion to make a birthday card-- a friend's baby's 1st birthday! So I broke out my FAVORITE stamp set by Close To My Heart. It's called Nursery Bash and it's adorable!

I fussy-cut the giraffe. His feet and mane have some dimension (they are sticking out). The giraffe dots have brown glitter. I can't wait to give this to the birthday boy!

I'd like to enter this card in a few challenges:
-Clear It Out, glitter it!
-A Spoon Full Of Sugar, birthday cards
-Ladybug Crafts Ink, favorite stamp
-The Stamping Boutique, stripes and dots
-Tuesday Throwdown, dimension and texture
-Cards For Men, anything goes
-Make It Monday, anything goes
-Paper Playtime, anything goes
-Sentimental Sundays, birthday cards
-If The Shoe Fits... Scrap It, Jungle
-Wee Memories, masculine
