This card was a three challenge submission! I used the color challenge from Charmaine, the Paper Tole challenge from Dawn and the sketch challenge from Laura.
A close up of the paper tole. This was the first time I'd ever tried it and I popped up the hippo's head once and the balloon twice. Gotta love dimension!!
This card was a sketch challenge by....you guessed it, Ms. Sweet Sunday Sketch herself, Karen! I love playing along with her on Sundays, so I couldn't NOT do this one! I also tried to use the colors for Jodi's challenge but since I don't have the new In Colors, I had to work with what I had, so I used More Mustard, Purely Pomegranate & Blue Bayou.
