{SSSC52 & CTD76} Hip-Hippo-Ray!

I've got another card for you today created especially for two challenges and using the Stampin' Up! PUN FUN set.   This set has been around for awhile, but it is *new* to me so I want to find a reason to ink up all 8 stamps in the set! 

The colors used are from the COLOR THROWDOWN Challenge #76 to use so saffron, melon mambo and old olive.  I know these colors would be perfect for a springy card, but I chose to make a baby card using the Hip-Hippo-Ray hippo! 

The sketch is by Karen Giron from The Sweetest Thing and this is her "Sweet Sunday" Sketch Challenge.  Yes, I know it's FRIDAY already.  I'm really running behind this week!  Better late than never, I always say! ;)  You'll notice I flipped the sketch 90 degrees, otherwise it's basically the same.  I added the sentiment circle with the button just for FUN and because I thought it needed a little something extra. ;)  I really enjoy sewing on my cards and tried a combination straight-stitch/zig zag in the upper left corner.   The base cardstock is old olive stamped with a tiny polka dot.  I've layered on textured melon mambo punched on one end with the scalloped edge.  The designer paper is Razzleberry Lemonade from Stampin' Up!

Are you happy it's Friday and looking forward to the weekend as much as I am?  I'm planning to enjoy a little stampin' time that's for sure!  Whatever you've got planned ~ ENJOY!

Happy Stamping and Smiles 2 U!
