Your Hip!

I made this card for Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #26.  This was a fun sketch challenge.  Plus I got to use two new stamp sets that I haven’t been able to find the time to use.  I used CTMH’s “Life’s A Jungle” for the sentiment and Stampology’s “Mindy’s Zoo” for the hippo clouds and palm tree.  I love both of these stamp sets! 


I really like how it all came together.  I even got out my sewing machine and did a little stitching around the edges. 


I just love that little hippo!  Isn’t he just the cutest!  I also decorated the inside too.  I really like how it adds just a little more to the card and lets someone know that you really care about them.


Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful day!
