First I started with a trial run of coloring this cute giraffe in pink. It just didn't make me happy. I tried again and made her yellow with pink dots, and that seemed to be a more natural look, so I went with that one. The original mock up was not as bright, so I tried more intense colors. Also, I had this fabulous paper pack from Basic Grey that had vibrant pinkish reds and I felt it carried the colors so much better than stark reds or vibrant solids.
I hope it inspires you to make all your Holiday cards early, as it takes me quite a long time for special treats to my dear friends!! But I love every minute of it!!
