One of my friends that recently had a baby has a jungle/safari theme for her son's nursery, so for her shower, I bought wooden jungle animal cut-outs for the walls. When he was born, I stuck with that theme and found the most adorable little outfit with a lion on the bib and on the back of the pants. So when I saw this gift bag in Target, I knew I had to get it. The colors are so fun and bright, plus the bag was glittered, though that doesn't show up in the photo.
Since I'm a big fan of themes and matching stuff, I wanted to make a card that fit the gift bag and what you see here is what I came up with. I used the colors from the bag as my color scheme for the card and used the only safari animal stamp I own - the elephant from Bitty Baby Blessings. Some of the animals on the bag are polka dotted, so I mimicked that with the background as well as the polka dot paper I used to paper piece the elephant. And of course I had to draw in the glitter somehow, so the edge of the turquoise circle framing the sentiment is covered with turquoise Stickles. I think the card and bag look so cute together and am really pleased with how it came out!
Here's a closeup of the card so you can see the paper piecing and sparkle a little better.
