Hip Hip Hurray! Throwback Thursday Challenge #60

Hello Everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. It's busy here. My sister is coming for a visit and so I am trying to get ready.
I wanted to share my submission to Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time. The challenge this week was to use the Cricut cartridge ZooBalloo. It is an oldie but a goodie. This is actually one of the first one's I had ever bought and I have enjoyed it very much.

The recipe:
This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.
ZooBalloo Cricut cartridge ~ hippo cut at 3 inches shadow and blackout. Letters cut at 1 1/2 inches welded together in Design Studio. I used the shdow feature for this. Cloud ( sorry I don't remember what the size was for this ) I used the hide contour feature to hide one of the clouds.
Create A Critter Cricut cartridge ~ grass ( again, I don't remember the size )

All the solid cardstock is from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is from DCWV Animal Crackers Stack.

Eye stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps ABC Animal Faces ~ I don't remember the one I used but it was not the one for the hippo. I used one that just had the eyes. I drew the other details on with a black gel pen.

Hemp was used for the bow.
Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye for the inking
Pop dots

Thanks for stopping by!
