Hip-Hippo-Ray!





Kazan's Sketch #47 at 2 Sketches 4 You was just the avenue I needed tonight to squeeze in a card before the Bachelor finale comes on:) Yes, I'm a Bachelor fan...my dirty little secret, if you will.

I had to dust this sweet stamp set, Pun Fun, off after not having used it for so long! The circle panel on Kazan's sketch was the perfect size to showcase this cute little hippo. The Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack was the color inspiration for my card...love the Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie!





Stamps: Pun Fun
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, Whisper White CS, Sweet Pea DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie & Close to Cocoa Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain & Corduroy Buttons, Mat Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Scallop Trim Punch, Circle/Scallop Circle Nestabilities (non-SU)
