Finally Something New....

I'm slapping this on the blog quickly before I head over to Amy's for our technique workshop tonight. I created this over two days..... (no 20 minute card creations for me right now.)
This card encorporates a number of this weeks' challenges
1) Colour Challenge - Real Red, Glorious Green, and Night of Navy. Here's the gallery again.
2)Ways to Use it Challenge - Eyelets - There have been some very creative cards with eyelets this week - gallery here
3)Limited Supplies Challenge - Do It Yourself Designer Paper - gallery here

I'm disappointed with the way I coloured the hippo. She's a bit washed out because of the blender pen so her colour isn't very even, or vibrant....but I guess she just came out of the water to visit a friend with her balloons.

Have a marvelous weekend.....Happy Stampin' - Joan
I Can't wait for Diva's tomorrow!!!!!
