This & That... charming

Hello there craft peeps...
I hope your day is going great!
I decided today I would post this little 'daddy' card.  The backgound paper (with all the numbers) is from an Echo Park 6x6 paper pad called This & That 'Charming', its a super paper pad for male cards.  The colours are in lovely shades of greens, yellows and browns with some great manly themes, and its all double sided, i love this pad...
Anyway... this is what I made...
As I said the background paper is from Echo Pad and the giraffes are cut using my cricut expression with the CREATE-A-CRITTER cartridge, the sentiment "A father is someone you can look up to /No matter how tall you grow" was printed out using my computer.  The cm tape was an old one (that had been stretched over time and so could no longer be used to measure accurately, so it got recycled, here!), I believe you can get  'washi tape' that has measurements on it, but since I haven't got any... I had to improvise!
