Serendipity Stamps: Challenge #40 - All you need is Love

We are continuing the ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE challenge 
for you from the  Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.
To participate in the challenge just use any of Serendipity's images or dies in your creation with this theme for a chance to win $20 off your next purchase!
  The Design Team has an added challenge  this week to add Vellum to our projects.

Check out the designs the DT came up with this week:
A big welcome to Kara Vrabel of K and R Designs who is our guest designer for October! 

I created a layered frame for my purple Hippo adding some embossed vellum in the background. This fun little Hippo could be colored up for a sweet baby card easily, but today I just used it for an any occasion card. 

 After stamping the hippo in Memento Tuxedo Black, I cut the image out. You can see the Copic Markers I used. Since this image already had so much shading it was a quick coloring job!

A little bling and some small ribbons to dress up the Hippo! I added foam tape between layers for dimension. I also added a little white twinkle in the eyes using Copic Opaque White.

Since our theme is still LOVE for the month I added a "Who loves ya Baby" sentiment inside. My card is an A2 and opens tent style.
