Well, I got my SU! order late Monday afternoon and I've already busted out a couple of the new stamp sets (though one card you won't see 'till later as it's for a design team). Today it's time for Hippest Hippos from the new Sale-a-Bration catalog.
Meet Hyacinth. She's named after the dancing hippo on Disney's Fantasia : ) Can't see it in the picture, but I put Wink of Stella on her tutu because a tutu should be sparkly, don't you agree?
I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
And the Color Throwdown:
That made for a pretty quick card! I used Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape for the colors; the Highland Heather Stampin' Blends were close enough to Gorgeous Grape. I grabbed some scraps of retired DSP for the layers and had this card done in under 15 minutes easy.
And now it's time for me to go back upstairs and see if I can finish off the scrapbook pages I was working on yesterday. Cheers!
