Hearty Hippo

Welcome back to another sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! This week we have a blast from the past sketch and Meljen's Designs returns as our sponsor.

Here's the sketch for the week - originally drawn up by Arlana Patten. Arlana has always been so talented in developing interesting sketches with lots of layers. This one turns out great.  For more inspiration, you can find the original creations with this sketch here.

Meljen's Designs is our sponsor this week and it's so nice to have Melissa Jenkins return to SSW. We all love her images!  The grand prize winner of the challenge will receive four digi stamps from Meljen's - a fantastic prize.  Thanks Melissa!

I created my card using Hearty Hippo from Meljen's Designs. I colored with Prismacolor pencils this time - it's been a long time since I used those!  The papers are a combination of different companies all from my stash.

Now stop on by Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see more creations with the sketch and Meljen's Designs images.

Thanks for stopping by!
