Paper Smooches Zoo Crew

I have another card today for the Splitcoaststampers CAS #189 challenge.  
The challenge this week it to use their clean and simple sketch.

I've been working on making more CLEAN & SIMPLE cards and thought playing in some of those type challenges would help me develop my skills.  I love how my card turned out but I have to tell you leaving it alone is so very difficult for me! 

I used the Paper Smooches clear stamp set called Zoo Crew for my card.  
The cute hippo is colored with Copic markers:

W1, W3, W5, RV10, RV21

She's cut out and popped up with foam tape just above the banners.

I made the banners using Basic Grey Bittersweet & Ambrosia patterned papers, the envelope liner is from the same Basic Grey Bittersweet collection and made using a Papertrey Ink envelope liner die.  To make my banner ends I used an EK Success square punch.

Attached everything to the one layer card base and stamped the "hippo hooray" sentiment.  
There is a birthday sentiment on the inside, this card is ready to go into my stash of birthday cards.

I see there is actually a visual on how to cut that banner. LOVE it! I don't have a square punch but I think it's going on my wish list now. You know... that never ending wish list! :)
