Corrosive Challenge #229-To "Die" For

Welcome to another fantastic challenge from Corrosive Challenges.  Our theme this time around is To Die For.  We ask that you use dies in your project.  Our sponsor is Oddball Art Stamps and the prize is 3 awesome digis.

For my card I used Creepy Cute Zombie Giraffe.  My niece and I recently went to the zoo.  She told me her favorite animal is a panda but her favorite zoo animal is a giraffe.  I thought I would use this image to make her birthday card.  She will be 11 next month.  I hope she likes it.

Please head over to the Corrosive Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

I have to admit that I have never seen a zombie giraffe before, but yours turned out pretty darn cool! I love the way you added the tinges of grey to it and gave it funny odd-shaped googly eyes. The tattered edges go along with it so perfectly and the ribbon keeps it elegant, too! I bet your niece will love it and it's always great when you can personalize a card based on the recipients' interests and likes. You did a great job with a challenge theme that would have really thrown me for a loop! Thanks for sharing this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
