WSC31


This is the sketch for Beate's weekend challenge #31. I'm so glad I was able to get to it a bit earlier this week. ;)

Here's my card:



This adorable hippo is in Melanie's new set, "Just so Hippy", which is manufactured by Gina K. Designs. Isn't she darling?

The base of my card is Cameo Coral. The Soft Sky layer was embossed with my Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder from Eclectic Paperie. The strip of designer paper is from the new Western Sky paper from SU. I stamped the hippo on Naturals White paper with Palette Noir ink, and colored with my Aqua Painter and Classic inks. I used my Nestabilites for the circle and scalloped circle. I used my SU Build-a-Brad kit to make my brads with the flower from the set.

Thanks so much for visiting!!
