Serendipity Stamps Challenge of the Month

It is time for another creative challenge from Serendipity Stamps and this month the design challenge is to create a monochromatic card using Serendipity Stamps. I was really excited about this challenge. Inasmuch as I love lots of color on my cards, this challenged provided an opportunity to use the color palette in a range of just one color.

As soon as Mary and Kelli announced the challenge theme to the design team I knew immediately which stamp set I wanted use. This little Hippo Set has the sweetest expression and I had to use her on a girly-girl all pink card. I think she'd be adorable for a newborn or perhaps 1st birthday card.

Card Recipe Ingredients:
Stamps: Serendipity Stamps, Hippo Cling Set Code: 072QCL
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Crimson Red
Designer Paper: Stampin' Up!
Colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Color Pencils
Accessories: Nestibilities circle and scalloped circle dies, Making Memories Photo corner punch, Prima Flower from the Nursery Tales Collection, Stickles on the bow, machine stitching.
