I thought I'd finish off my babbling about my trip to Australia with the card that I made as a thank-you to those who let us stay with them. I made 3 cards similar to this altogether and one of them went to my mum and dad for helping us out a bit to get there.
Here's my card
I couldn't resist using this cute Magnolia stamp - "Koala Hug"! I coloured it with my copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E37,35,33. Clothes; YG97,95,93,07,05,03. Koala; W9,7,5,3,E43,41. And a bit of black prima for the shading.
The paper is "Origins" paper pad from Basic Grey. I used a Doo Hickey tag die and ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up! stamp that I've had for ages! I kept it simple cos time was against me! lol!
And the inside is even more simple, using another Doo Hickey die-cut.
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
