Join Us with the Sketch Challenge with H2H!

So are you ready to try your hand at this week's sketch?
I am really hooked on our new Sweetheart Paper Pack and thought that the animals from It's A Zoo would be great with this sketch.  I had used them on a scrapbooking page for a family vacation in this way and they were absolutely adorable.

Here is my card.  

My card base is made with our new Kraft paper.  I am really into matting my papers as well as sponging the edges with ink.  I like the way it causes the papers to "pop" and give it dimension.  I used our new Kraft Color-Ready Borders on the edge of my card.  They are so versatile and come in so many different shapes.  I love how they add a nice extra to my card. Do you notice the Licorice Opaques that I used for eyes for my animals?  Loving them!   I decided instead of sponging the edges of my Kraft scallops with ink I would run glitz glue gel around the edges.  I am glad I did.
