Big Koala Hug


Here is the card (one on one swap organized by Joanne in Gina K forum) I made my Secret Swapper. I also slipped in a few little embellishment goodies. I used sketch SC182 . I really like this sketch - it was fun working with all the squares as long as you could get them lined up well.

Stamps: Cuddles and Hugs
Cardstock: Kraft, Blush Blossom, Ruby Red, SU! Ginger Blossom
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Always Artichoke

Accessories: word window punch, hemp twine, Koh-i-Noor & Prismacolor pencils & baby oil Pin It

I love this! You made those koalas look so cute. Did you use punches for the squares or cut them out with a paper cutter? They look so well placed.

Looks terrific, Donna! Very cute image, and I love the look of stamping right onto the kraft c.s. Your colors look so good together! =)

P.S.
I got the bg thing to work! We had so much fun trying it on my neice's blog that I decided to change up mine as well. Do you like it? :)

I love the red base, it really pops the little Koala's - which by the way are colored so beautifully, so soft and perfect! The hemp is a very nice touch!
