Hip Hip Hooray!!!

Hi Everyone,

This card was created using the Just Magnolia Challenge Sketch. I also wanted to use embossing to enter the Magnolia Down Under Challenge this week. I have used the Cuttlebug Rose Embossing Folder on the Pink and White Cardstock. On the White Cardstock I have brayered pink ink over the embossing and on the Pink Cardstock I have brayered Versamark over the roses and sprinkled them with Seafoam White Embossing Powder and Heat Embossed them.

Gloria the Hippo is by Magnolia (of course!) and has been coloured with Copics. It is quite hard to see in the pic but she is wearing some pale pink blush. The photo doesn't really do her justice as she came up better IRL. The sentiment was computer generated in Comic Sans Font. I will also enter this card at Crazy for Challenges - Paper Flowers challenge and over at Allsorts Challenge the theme this week is embossing.

Stamps: Magnolia - Gloria the Hippo
Inks: Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black & SU Pink Pirourette 

Paper: Pink & White Cardstock 

Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Roses, Spellbinder Nestabilities Small Circle,  MS Latticeand Leaf Punches,  Computer and Heat Gun

Embellishments: Ribbon, Stickles, Foam Dots, Flowers and Pearls
