Any Excuse For Cake

Today I'm sharing an extra Polkadoodles image; one I used for a card swap challenge.

This is Helga Hippo - Bring the Cake and I used her for the Alphabet swap for 'H' for Hippo of course. 

I sized Helga to about 3 1/2" tall and placed her to the left of the card front center.  Then I added the sentiment 'Any excuse for cake & a catch up' to the top right and printed the images on Neenah 110# cardstock. 

I used my Copic markers for coloring and then used Gina Marie Designs Labels 3 for the decorative edges on the image and the patterned mat.  I secured both layers on a coordinating salmon A2 card base then added the plastic fishtail tag 'Good Times' to complete the card design.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
