Glitz and Glimmor

Don't we all love when we can multi-task? This week my card meets 2 challenges Tuesday Throwdown for "glitz & glimmer" and this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

I really love this cutie hippo by Mostly Animals. I colored the body with a pink pencil to give it a little glow. The shoes and her fingernails (don't show up here) are done with a red star gel pen. What is more glam than ruby slippers?

The star is colored with gold gel star pen and the wings with clear star gel pen. The IP is from Fiskar. I think it looks like animal hide. The gold glitter paper is from SU. That great sentiment "Where's that Fairy Godmother when you need her" was found at a craft show. It is from
This makes a really fun birthday card. Here is the inside:



  1. So cute! Love those fingernails and toenails!

  2. Just adorable! I love the inside sentiment! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

  3. Absolutely true - ruby slippers are THE ultimate in fashion! I love both the sentiments - and a little hippo fairy? Too dang cute! Thanks so much for coming to play with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week :)

  4. This is beautiful! Love the sparkly gold paper and the hippo is so cute.
    Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown.
