CSS Treasure Chest Blog Hop

Welcome to another CSS Blog Hop!  If you came from Jen's blog you are in the right place, and if not be sure to start at the beginning HERE.  This month we are having a new hop theme: Treasure Chest.  We going to pay tribute to the animal kingdom and create a card using any GKD stamp set that features animals...and let me tell you there are a TON!!!  I pulled out one of the first sets I ever got over 2 years ago... Hip Hop Accessories illustrated by Melanie:

I combined this with the Stamp TV Color Challenge of Creme de Menthe, Red Hot and Lemon Drop.
I also added bow and a little Flower Soft beneath the cute paper pieced hippo.  This card just makes me giggle :o)
Next stop on the hop is... Joy!  Can't wait to see what Treasure Chest design she has to share for the hop.


Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (March 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs, that person will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

I am entering this into the CPS 206 challenge as well as into the Paper Piecing Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  I paper pieced the hippo.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
