Giraffe thanks Card

Created this Animal thanks card w/ Giraffe theme & Fall colors. Used some DCWV matstack paper that I've had for years and have been holding onto. Used Lawn Fawn Critters on the Savanna stamp/die set. Used Giraffe ribbon I've had for awhile but not as long as the paper. Added 3mm wiggle eyes that I've had for a long time; perhaps even longer than the paper. Not sure when I get to the end of the bag which I know I bought at Hobby Lobby since I kept the pkg with 3mm size info and know that these are the tiniest wiggle eyes made and not seen anywhere other than at Hobby Lobby. Other stores have 5mm & up.

Supplies List 

ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
paper: DCWV Earth Prints Border & Matting Papers & Cardstock, cardstock: Kraft - base
ribbon: ribbon trends Giraffe
stamp/die:  Lawn Fawn Critters on the Savanna set
wiggle eyes: 3mm
