Giraffe cards

Hi friends, I hope you all had a lovely Mother's 
day  yesterday. I had a great day with lots of
flowers/plants/chocs/wine/cards and saw my lovely
 children and grandchildren of course.
 
 
 
I have a couple of cards to show you today.
I made the grey one first and wasn't happy
 about it....kept trying but just wasn't working.
 
 
 
 
Showing you it anyway....then I tried again
with the same image. Much happier this time.
I wanted to get the Giraffe peeking out from
 the frame. I think the bit of embossing/chalking
 helped too.
 
 
 
 
I still struggle a bit with one layer cards.
Sorry the pic is a tad dark but the embossing
 wouldn't show otherwise. 
 
 
Anyway I wish you all a good week, 
whatever you have planned ;)
