Hogs & Sketches Challenge & Curtain Call Act 41

 


The sketch this month at Hambo's Hogs & Sketches was a fun one and since I love Hambo's stamps, I decided to play along. I also used the colors from Curtain Call #41 (light blue, navy, crumb cake and white).

I flipped the sketch and layered light blue and light brown strips on my navy background piece and ran the whole thing through the big shot in an embossing folder. I just loved the "Chipmunk Blessing" saying from Hambo's new release and of course had to buy the cute chipmunk with it. I cut out the chipmunk and paper pieced his pile of nuts. The inside says "Happy Birthday to my Favorite Nut". Too cute.

Stamping smiles, Karen
