Whimsy Whoops!


So the challenge this week at Whimsy Stamps Challenge blog was to make a card with a fun fold. I don't usually do a lot of fun folds, square is pretty crazy for me, so this was definitely a challenge!!! I decided to do a triangle tri-fold card so I could combine it with the Truly scrumptious sketch, which is sponsored by Whimsy!!! I thought I'd use the new hippo image on this one! What I didn't realize until I had finish was that triangle tri-fold cards are quite tiny and the hippo's behind, although adorable, well is not tiny!!! So this is how I fixed it....I added sweet little pajama time Emma instead! I paper pieced on her jammies and colored her with copics. In addition to the 2 whimsy sponsored challenges this whoops also fits in at......
Secret crafter Saturday challenge....1 ribbon, 2 designer papers and 3 buttons
Everybody art challenge.......dots and stripes
Creative card crew....polka dots

Thanks for stoppin' by!
