Triple Flower Threat & a Giraffe

I'm getting this challenge in by the skin of my teeth tonight. I used the Color Throwdown #176 and Clean & Simple sketch #175 for this clean but vibrant card.

All supplies SU! {Paper} Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake {Ink} Rose Red {Stamp} So Happy For You (retired SAB '10) {Extras} 5-petal flower punch, Boho Blossoms punch, flower from Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, rhinestone brad, rhinestone jewels, Houndstooth embossing folder

On a completely non stamping issue, I would like to introduce our newest family member.........

meet Marty! Yes, Marty is a giraffe, a 6 1/2 foot giraffe to be exact. Since I was in high school I always said I was going to own a giraffe named Marty one day. Well folks, that day was Saturday. My son and husband found this giraffe at a yard sale for only a few dollars and he is now mine! Don't ask me why a giraffe and don't ask why Marty because I don't remember but I can say HE IS AWESOME! He's going straight to my craft room to guard all my goodies =)
