Hee! I've had this set since it was released...like 70 years ago or something and haven't used it at all. It was neglected and sad. But today when I was shopping in the scrapbook store, I saw this pad of paper that I just KNEW had to be used to paper piece this gal. It sure turned her frown upside down! :D
I made this card using Taylor's Cupcake Challenge sketch for this week. I must say, at first, I wasn't a fan of it since I'm not big on tearing paper. I always make it look all messy. And then I was like, "DUH. It is supposed to be messy-ish." I mean, seriously, that is how my pea-sized brain works sometimes.
Stamps: Hippo from Just So Hippy from Gina K. as well as the sentiment
CS and papers: All CS is SU! The patterned paper is from Sassafras Lass' Sunshine Lollipops collection. (LOVE!)
Accessories: Cuttlebug and A2 embossing folder, perfect layers, ribbon from Target's dollar spot, stick-on pearls on the dots on her rump.
Other info: I stamped the hippo on the patterned paper then cut her out, and popped up the rump separate from the head. I used a white gel pen to color in her toenails, eye and tooth so it didn't look like she had bad hygiene.
Thanks for looking!
