Sweet Sunday #36

I wanted to have a play with another sketch. A good day for it considering the dust storm we seem to be having. It feels a little eerie with the strange yellow light. Anyway, I had a go at Karen Giron's latest Sweet Sunday sketch.
Here is the sketch:

And my card:

I was going to use the Washington Apple papers but thought it would be too close to this card I made for Keesh's challenge so I changed to using papers from the Candy Lane pack. These are pretty papers, quite girly. The cute hippo is from 'Pun Fun' and the Happy Birthday stamp is a bargain 'stand alone' stamp called 'Birthday Wish', and it is so handy. I made the 'flowers' using the scallop circle punch. My colouring is not so good but it still turned out kinda cute. I used crystal effects on the little balloon & bow on the hippo stamp, just gives them a bit of definition.

Anyway, that's all for today. Must grab some lunch.
Have a great, if rather dusty, day,
Fi xox
