Tuesday Morning Koala

Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to share a card I made for the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge this week.  I received my Stampin' Up order the other day with this adorable Koala stamp just waiting to be inked up.  TMS gave me that chance ... seems like this sketch was just created for the little Koala.  Click HERE to see the other samples.

So, here's my little Koala... and, no, he's not a bear... but he's cuddly as a bear, right?

I stamped him using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored him with Copics.  The background layer is soft suede which I embossed with the wood grain embossing folder.  The strip of dsp along the edge is from a retired packet (which I still love) called Comfort Cafe since it had the soft suede and the very vanilla.  I used Calypso Coral to highlight the 'you' sentiment and added some Calypso Coral ribbon.

I have a feeling this is going to become one of my favorite stamps.  Love his cute expression :-).  Hope you like him too!!!

Thanks for visiting
