Hippest Hippos In Love With TGIF Challenge 381!

Quick post today sharing the latest TGIF Challenge!  It is one of my favorite kinds of challenges...a SKETCH Challenge!  This is such a great way to get the creative juices flowing.  And you can stick to it exact or make some changes.  Here is the card I made...then I will show you the sketch!

Don't you LOVE these cute Hippos from the Sale-A-Bration brochure?!  They were pretty fun to craft with, if I do say so myself.  Haha.  

And here is the card sketch for the week!  

So you can see...I followed the sketch, but made a few tweaks.  I moved the banner piece up under the focal point, used a hexagon instead of a circle and changed the size of the front cardstock piece.  

The hexagon I cut out from the Beautiful Shapes Dies and used a Blending Brush to add some Coastal Cabana color.  I colored the hippos with Blends...can I just say how much I LOVE these markers?!  They color so beautifully!  I didn't do any blending of the colors...just used the two different shades to color them in.  😍

There is the cutest die set that you can also get from the Sale-A-Bration brochure that coordinates with the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set.  Has some super cute and fun elements.  And this flower was part of it!  I just cut some out and added them to the background with sequins on top.

This was such a fun & cheery card to do!  I hope you enjoy it too!  Now head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog & play along with us this week!  Can't wait to see what you make!
