Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Hip Hip Hooray!


Hip Hip Hooray! I finally played in a Dynamic Duos challenge again!!!

The colours this week are Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.....great for a card for a tween girl!

I visited Mojo Monday this week for a sketch idea and they were doing 'Tall & Skinny' with cool vertical banners.

I used the very funky "Hip Hip Hooray" sentiment from the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit  - the great thing about these kits is that once you have made all the cards, you still have the stamps to continue playing with and they are very on-trend and versatile. 

My embellishment areas of the sketch were decorated with stars....the small star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack and the Star Framelit from the Circle Card Thinlits Die

I matted my Designer Series Paper to give it a finished look and then just layered my sentiment panel on dimensionals. 

There's so much 'trend' going on here - chevrons, banners, stars, subway-art-sentiments! I know it will make a little girl very happy!

I am linking this up to the Seize the Birthday challenge this week...the "toppings" are buttons & rhinestones...or anything blingy...so I hope my glittery stars fit the bill. :)

Hope you like my card!
