Hey There Good Lookin'

Happy March 1st peeps! Did you say rabbit, rabbit, rabbit this morning? LOL, I actually don't know about that, till I met hubby. If we talk to his dad on the 1st of the month, he'd ask did you say it? For those not familiar what this is all about, they said that when the 1st of the month come, your first words of the day should be rabbit, rabbit, rabbit.... for good luck. :)

Now, on to card. This past weekend, Jehanne from Just Some Lines sent me some images to work with. I am freelancing as her personal card designer. And when I saw this cute hippo, I know I want to play with it.

And, I am so happy with the way it turned out. Just look at her flirty eyes. One of my guy friend likes to say hey there good lookin', and that's where the idea for sentiment came from. The good lookin' part placed on the inside of the card.

Challenges:
Paper Playtime - Anything goes with a Digi
Stamps R Us - For the Girls
Shannon's Sentiments - Fussy Cutting
Woodware USA - Anything goes


I partially cut part of the image, so I can roll them and create dimension. The small flower stem was cut  & I added pop dot underneath it.  Same as the blig leaves and flower on the right side of the hippo. I used 2 different thickness of pop dots here to create even more dimension. In real life, you could actually see the bend and dimension much better.


The way the color popped... makes me happy. Reminds me when I was in Seattle last year and the way the vibrant colors of the flowers mesmerize me. I draw the grass using Copic markers.

What do you think? I hope this card makes you smile. Thank you for stopping by and for all your generous wonderful comments. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. Cheers....
