Commissioned Birthday Cards for Two Brothers

I was asked to make birthday cards for two little brothers who are MAD about animals.  I decided it was the perfect time to buy the Peerless Designs Cuddle Upz CD after seeing some gorgeous cards made by Shirley (Nannieflash).  Oh my goodness me Sarah Hallam is certainly one talented lady.  I decided to do them both a Cuddle Upz card but it was oh so difficult to pick which images to use.  In the end I decided to go for the elephants and giraffes.  

 
 
 
For my first card I used the Cuddle Upz elephant, backing paper, insert and some extra images so that I could fully decorate the cards inside and out and also the envelopes as I know the grandmother would hand deliver the card.  Due to recipient being a child I didn't any 3d embellishments as I would hate them to be pulled off and swallowed etc. 
 
 
 
For the second card I used the images of the giraffes.  I think they are my favourites as they amaze me as animals how they hold their necks up.  Again I have used Cuddle Upz, extra images, backing papers and insert.

I am entering the card into the following challenge:

The CD Sunday Challenge - On safari
Papercrafting Journey - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday card and sentiment

Two simply amazing cards Kym. I have this CD and agree with you Sarah Hallam is really talented, her art work is beautiful. But it is you who has made the cards.
