Sketch Challenge

Here's a card I did for Taylor's cupcake challenge. I know I didn't use a cupcake but you don't have to. The challenge was to use her sketch. The hippo was screaming at me, so I had to use it. It was an image I got from Sabrina. Thanks Sabrina! Better late than never right?

I did however wind up making a cupcake card as well. Hope you enjoy!!!
I used my chalks to shade the hippo and doodlebug buttons with ctmh waxy flax for the holes.
I used groovy blossoms and ctmh cs, crystal blue, sweet leaf, chocolate and hollyhock
Used swiss dots, ctmh boom di ada paper and designer ric rac. I used liquid applique and stickles for the icing and used my ctmh markers to color in the rest!
