CAS(E) This Sketch #260



Hi there, blog friends! After seeing Chrissy Larson's fabulous sketch, I am happily playing along this week at CAS(E) This Sketch


This sketch was a great opportunity to use my new MFT sentiment die...I used Distress Oxide inks for the candle and colored the hippo, gift and party hat with Copic markers. I also embossed the background with a PTI cover plate to add texture and interest to the design.
  
That's it for me today ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Happy Hippos
Dies: MFT - WISH die, Happy Hippos
Inks: Tim Holtz - Distress Oxide Inks
Misc: Copic Markers; PTI - Picnic Basket cover plate

That hippo has been making the rounds and now he's here on your cute card, Barb. I love that the I in "wish" is a candle.
