Pink Hippo

Well, joy of joys...I went to collect our mail at lunch time and found my circle nesties, swiss dots and d'vine swirl embossing folders had arrived ..... Yippeee! I came straight home to inspect my much awaited nesties and give them a whirl. I now, finally have something to cut circles with so that's what you'll be seeing in the near future all over my

This card is for three challenges, Secret Crafter Challenge 17 is at the zoo, Penny Black week 34 challenge is to make a circle card and finally this week's Cupcake Challenge is to use the colours white, pink, plum and lilac only - on the challenge they have named the exact SU colours, but I don't have them so I have just used as close as possible.

For the card I used my new nesties, obviously, and I coloured the penny black image with whispers pens. I used my swiss dots embossing folder on one of the layers and on the two white layers I pierced around the edges for a bit of extra detail. The top two layers are raised on foam pads for a bit of dimension and I finished off with three flat backed pearls and a bow.

Card: White, purple and lilac card
Stamp: Penny Black
Colouring: Whispers pens and blender pen
Embellishments: American crafts ribbon, pearls
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots embossing folder, needle
Thanks for looking x
