That Was Bonza, Mate!

Evening all!

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:

CRAFT Challenge; Inspiration photo.  My inspiration came from the colours and that it was a holiday, I hope that counts!
